Register for Tuesday's BCG webinar: Ten Tools for Genealogical Writing by Harold Henderson, CG

Register-bcg
 
Genealogists love to research, but writing it up – not so much. First, we need to read good writing (any kind). Then, practice writing in two separate compartments: write as it comes, and return later to fix or edit. Don’t worry about beginnings or endings; they will emerge over time. Seek out helpful critics, never wait until the last minute, and be ready to learn from editors.
 
Join us, the Board for Certification of Genealogists, and Harold Henderson, CG for the live webinar Tuesday, August 20 at 8pm eastern U.S. Register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day. When you join, if you receive a message that the webinar is full, you know we've reached the 1,000 limit, so we invite you to view the recording which should be published to the webinar archives within an hour or two of the event's conclusion.

About the presenter
Harold Henderson has been a professional writer since 1979, a professional genealogist since 2009, and a board-certified genealogist since 2012. His research focuses on the Midwest and its feeder states. He has served on the board of the Association of Professional Genealogists and as a trustee of the Board for Certification of Genealogists. With Kimberly Powell, he developed and taught the five-day institute course "From Confusion to Conclusion" on writing proof arguments. He has lectured nationally and published more than 100 genealogy articles (midwestroots.net/misc1). Family histories for portions of the Bassett, Berry, Mozley, Scholes, Ackerson, Lowe, Flint, Thrall, and James families are in varying stages of completion and publication...but at any given time he would probably rather be reading a grantor index.
