Ever wonder if you can turn this genealogy passion into a career? Do people really make money or a living at doing genealogy for others? Throughout the GRIP July 19-24 week D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS, Debra Mieszala, CG, Judy G. Russell, J.D., CG, CGL, and Paula Stuart-Warren, CG, FMGS, FUGA will help you work through the answer on whether this is for you.
The quartet has a vast amount of experience in client-based research, lecturing, teaching, forensic, law, contracts, television and entertainment — and they are willing to share it all with you! Josh Taylor has worked on shows like “Who Do You Think You Are?” and is currently working on PBS-TV’s “Genealogy Roadshow” which gives him an unique perspective. He is also president of the Federation of Genealogical Societies which is putting on their annual conference next week in Salt Lake City in conjunction with RootsTech.
A partial description from the course description page (which gives the topics of all eighteen sessions) states: “Sessions include lectures, workshops, discussions, and live interviews with working professionals. During the week each participant will draft a strategic plan to refresh, rebuild, and recharge his or her current (or developing) business. This course is designed for those considering a career in genealogy, as well as seasoned professionals looking for a “boost” in the current climate.”
Registration for what looks like a very lively course begins on Wednesday, February 18, at noon eastern.
