In today’s podcast episode, Diana and I are talking about continuing education in genealogy. Benjamin Franklin said, “an investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” We discuss accreditation, the importance of keeping up with new methodologies and developments in the field such as DNA, and how to go about improving your genealogy education. Learning about records, localities, and methodologies are a good place to start. We also talk about setting goals, creating an education plan, books, webinars, conferences, institutes, blog reading, and other types of educational experiences.
