Thanks Angela. Sounds great!

Jessica, ProGen is a program for genealogists to hone their work product by going through the book Professional Genealogy chapter by chapter and doing assignments. It's geared toward those who are interested in professional credentials (BCG, ICAPGen, etc), but can be taken by anybody seeking to produce professional-quality work. It involves a yearlong time commitment and group feedback. It was a great experience, but could be quite intense!

Hello Gaynol!  I know you will love browsing through them. The photos are amazing and reading all of the details about why they were arrested and their sentences really fascinates me. Many of them were just for petty larceny...likely just trying to survive. You can see the desperation in some of their eyes....

What is ProGen?

Comment by Gaynol Fales on May 2, 2020 at 8:38am

Wasn't aware. Thanks for telling me about them. Imagine the stories in those!

Is anyone else completely fascinated by the Sacramento Police Mug Books now available on Archive.org? I can't stop browsing!

Hi Beverly, I know what you mean. I have one to finish for American Records and I'm about a third way through Professional.

I plan on taking ProGen at some point as precursor to trying for a CG but maybe enough is enough!

My personal work right now is tracing my father's line (because it's easier!). I have a brick wall of where a 3rdGgf went after NY in 1800. I find his kids but not him and no death records. Now I;ve uncovered evidence he'd land in the Western Reserve in late 1790s,. So maybe he was on his way to OH from ME through NY. And was it Rev War bounty land? So that's where my search is heading now.

What is your research interest?

Hi, I'm Beverly Duncan and I started my studies with the National Institute in 2012 and finished both my American Certificate and my English Certificate in 2015. Since then I have taken various other classes just to update or to study some of the subjects I've never taken.  I really enjoy taking these courses.  I've also taken the Boston University course and the Excelsior College course. ProGen was another challenge that I loved taken. There is so much information out there for us if we just reach out for it.  I'm looking forward to learning some new things on here. You always learn something in a group like this..

It's great that you're taking the Professional courses now! They were just rolling them out as I was nearing the end of my certificate program. I'm sure they're very helpful. :)
