New Book -- Becoming an Excellent Genealogist: Essays on Professional Research Skills

I received the following announcement from Tristan Tolman of the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (ICAPGen) and am interested in this new book. I have ordered a copy and will write a review after I read it, but thought others may be interested in the announcement:

ICAPGen is very pleased to announce the publication of a brand new genealogy book, hot off the press: Becoming an Excellent Genealogist: Essays on Professional Research Skills, edited by Kory L. Meyerink, MLS, AG, FUGA; Tristan L. Tolman, AG; and Linda K. Gulbrandsen, AG. 

Genealogical research has become one of the most popular pastimes in the United States. As the popularity of genealogical research continues to grow, so does the need for guidance that takes the researcher beyond basic, introductory instruction. This book provides higher levels of instruction to help you become a more excellent genealogist. It illustrates how to use sources and information better, develop more advanced research and analytical skills, and learn new methodologies.

The book is softcover and 234 pages. Price is $19.95. Order yours today at
