Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about the second portfolio element for certification: development activities. In this element, you list the genealogy-related activities that helped you prepare for certification and share how they helped you. We discuss several educational opportunities and how they help you learn more about genealogy standards, records, and methodology.

Hi Ladies – I’m very much enjoying the podcasts on certification, as with your encouragement, that is my goal after I complete (and hopefully pass!) the Boston University Genealogical Principals course. Listening to the two of you is like having virtual mentors. Best of luck, Nicole, on your certification!
Hugs from Canada,
Thank you, Anne! I hope you are successful with the BU course and that you will continue on with your goal of certification.
