As promised, here is the proof argument that I submitted for my ProGen39 course (.pdf format). If I decide to pursue certification, I will not be using this as part of my portfolio so I’m sharing it with you all. Constructive criticism welcome!
#130: Three small steps toward your goal.
My goal is to earn the title of Certified Genealogist (CG)SM. The steps I’ve taken thus far to attain that goal include:
- Education. Online classes through NGS, webinars, and seminars/conferences. I’m happy to announce that in the near future I will begin the first of three online courses for genealogy research offered to DAR members with the help of my chapter.
- Expanded my research. Researching as much as possible in surrounding counties and states.
- More writing! Writing up proof summaries and proof arguments.
- I’ll add one more thing: I’m putting together a PowerPoint about the steps to becoming certified. Just doing that has helped me focus in on the different aspects of the portfolio and preparation for such.
