I have a few things that have been published that might be helpful, plus my unpublished dissertation (viewable via my website - circlemending.org - under the "dissertation" tab - it links you to another site, but, as far as I know, the document is still there. It is on family stories. Sample: genealogists.
I had an article titled "Warning! Beware of Fallacious Reasoning in Genealogical Research!" in the June 2009 issue of Crossroads (UGA's newsletter). I've also had a couple of case studies published (NGA Quarterly, June, 2009; APGQ, June 2010; and Family Chronicle, June 2010) - not sure if those would be applicable, however. Hope that helps & I'd be pleased to assist in any other way I can. Will you be at FGS next month?

Susan, this is very cool - the class at MU. I just finished teaching a class for the Soboba Indians (their TANF program) & it went very well ... though only about 50% completed the course (it's not a college class by any stretch of the imagination, and it doesn't count for credit toward anything but the TANF program - which means $$). But it was a great experience & I learned things that don't work & many which do. I'm revamping it for fall, assuming they have me back. I would love to teach it in the community college system, but not sure if that would work with my nutty schedule.
I think your PhD in history is a great asset to genealogical research. Mine is in folklore (I got it for me, not for any job or desire to teach folklore, though I have fun doing so) . . . I have an MA in speech communication & taught that for years. Now it's just fun to do what I like - folklore & genealogy - and share that love with others.
