Family History Research

June ProGen Study Group Update

I’m still feeling a little out of sorts even after being home a week. Still getting caught up on things. ProGen keeps moving along though and that is one thing I have focused on the past week.

Our May assignment was to read about Accreditation and Certification. Our practical assignment was to use the transcript of a document we created in April and submit a statement identifying a research focus. Then we analyzed the data and created a research plan.

Now that June has arrived we are learning about Evidence Analysis. We read a chapter in the Professional Genealogy book and Chapter 1 of Evidence Explained.  My reading is done but I need to work on the assignment which is to select an individual I have been researching and list documents I have for that individual and my analysis of those documents. We will write proof arguments in the future.

I may select James Shannon, a man I have been working on for a friend. I found a lot of information on his family while I was in Missouri in May. It will be exciting and maybe I’ll discover something I overlooked in my initial research and review of documents.
