Planning Research The development of a sound research plan is the first step in the thorough research required by the Genealogy Proof Standard.

Strengthen Your Analysis: Fundamentals of Transcribing and Abstracting The ability to craft transcriptions and abstracts is an essential skill that is needed to accurately interpret handwritten records.

Meeting Standards for Narrative Genealogies, Lineages, and Pedigrees An understanding of generally accepted formatting options is helpful in presenting information about family relationships and successive generations.

An NGSQ Case Study: DNA Corroborates Oral Tradition The case study that won the NGSQ 2020 Award for Excellence illustrated the information needed to make sound decisions on when DNA tests can or should be used in genealogical research, and how to meet DNA-specific Genealogy Standards.

This one-day event is one you won’t want to miss. Additional presentations will include lectures from the staff of our co-sponsors, the Archives of Michigan, and the Library of Michigan.
