ICAPGen: Becoming an Excellent Genealogist

Whilst exploring the website this morning, I discovered a new book from this organization:

Edited by Kory L. Meyerink, MLS, AG, FUGA; Tristan L. Tolman, AG; and Linda K. Gulbrandsen, AG; Becoming an Excellent Genealogist: Essays on Professional Research Skills (Salt Lake City, Utah: International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists, 2012). Softbound, 234 pages. $19.95 plus shipping.

Description: Genealogical research has become one of the most popular pastimes in the United States. As the popularity of genealogical research continues to grow, so does the need for guidance that takes the researcher beyond basic, introductory instruction. This book provides higher levels of instruction to help you become a more excellent genealogist. It illustrates how to use sources and information better, develop more advanced research and analytical skills, and learn new methodologies.

Note: This book does not appear to be available in epub format, surprising in this day and age.

Has anyone read it yet? Might be good study material for our Second Life Just Genealogy group.

Happy family tree climbing!

  1. I tried to purchase it yesterday but their online store appeared to be not working. So I haven't bought it.

  2. Just received my copy in the mail yesterday so far have only read the introduction and the table of contents but it looks very worthwhile. Sandra Page
