"Hi Missy. Glad to hear you have a solid plan for your future. Looking forward to ProGen in the next year or so. Have decided I probably won't go for BCG or ICAPGen but certainly would have if I were younger. Best wishes in your goals!"
"The 22 Oct 2021 chat was the first in a long time that Brenda Wheeler was scheduled for a time convenient for me. Since transcription has been discussed a lot in the NIGS blog and in methodology chats, Brenda clarified questions about that and…"
"Welcome Laurel. It sounds like you have had a really interesting career. I've been a bit of a rover careerwise. Most best loved paths are Asian bodywork sport therapy practitioner (certification from Nippon Shiatsu Diagaku in VT), managing…"
"I seems from what I've heard in methodology chats that capitalization is losing ground as being the standard unless it is to avoid confusion, such as differentiating the surname JAMES from the given name James. But I know consistency of…"
"Hi Mary Jane, I'm glad you're excited about being a student. I'm an older student too and I love how the assignments challenge me to look at facts and history from different points of view. Not only have I learned about my ancestors…"

Would be nice to get some discussion going here not just about the course but about interesting things we're finding in our records or trials and tribulations finding them.
Have fun in the social media course. I didn't think…"
"Tamara, I'd try emailing admin@GenealogicalStudies.com or calling 1-800-580-0165. They could connect you with the person who can help you start one. They've always been super helpful to me no matter the…"
"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!

"Yes, I'd been looking at the background of some BCGs and saw ProGen. That's included on my pre-business plan as continued training. Have you settled on a a niche? I've some ideas but haven't picked a starter."
"I have one more compulsory to complete my Am Rec cert. Have half the Professional courses finished. Hope to start a business but I'm thinking it might be better to hold off to take a year to solidify my skills. There’s so much involved in…"
