Writing Family History Narratives Course Adds Second Session

The Writing Family History Narratives and Other Genealogical Works course with Dr. John Philip Colletta and Dr. Thomas W. Jones, has proven to be so popular that a second session has been added. The first session scheduled for July 25 - 29, 2011 filled quickly and so another is scheduled for August 1 - 5, 2011. This course is sponsored by the Center for Professional Education at Boston University and is a followup to their Genealogical Research Certificate Program. The program is held on campus at Boston University.

I am not surprised that there are so many genealogists interested in this course, as I would love to take it myself. I am focusing on genealogical writing this summer and am excited to attend the Writing and Publishing for Genealogists course with Dr. Thomas W. Jones at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR) in June. 

Both Dr. John Philip Colletta and Dr. Thomas W. Jones are excellent instructors and teach writing courses on a regular basis. Dr. Jones' writing course at IGHR runs on an annual basis (and fills to capacity on the first day of registration), and Dr. Colletta will teach "Producing a Quality Family Narrative" at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy in January of 2013.
