I just finished my second NGS American Genealogical Studies course, Guide to Documentation and Source Citation, with a 95%. One question on the final quiz tripped me up…now I know! I feel a lot more confident in my citation-writing ability (it doesn’t hurt that I have Elizabeth Shown Mills’ Evidence Explained to help me too!). I’m also paying closer attention to others’ citations, just so I can pick them apart. This gives me practice in analyzing the document that person is citing to see how they crafted the citation.
Now that I’ve completed NGS AGS The Basics and the above, I can enroll in Beyond the Basics. The courses are all cloud-based and very easy to navigate through Canvas Learning Management System by Instructure. I was able to work on the course on my laptop or iPad, no problems at all.
I’m taking a short break from study and then it’s onto DAR yearbook! Love my Saturdays!
