The Periodical Source Index, or PERSI, is the largest subject index to genealogy and local history periodical articles in the world.

Writing a Quality Research Report by Whitney Tolman

Writing a Quality Research Report by Whitney Tolman
A free virtual presentation by the Utah Genealogical Association July 5, 2022
6 p.m. MDT (4 p.m. EDT)

Being a good professional genealogist is more than just being able to do quality research. You have to know how to present it well in a research report to show your clients and others the reasoning behind the conclusions you made. Learning to write well increases the chances of getting a good job in the genealogical field and it also helps as you prepare for credentialing. This class will go over different methods for helping your research reports shine in order to showcase the quality of your research.

Meeting Saturday, March 12, 2022 CANCELLED

Due to the weather forecast for tomorrow, the in person/zoom session for Saturday, March 12, 2022 has been cancelled. We are sorry to do this but the forecasters seem to think that the worse weather will be in the morning hours.  As one forecaster said, the old groundhog did predict six more weeks of bad weather.  Hopefully spring is around the corner!
