BCG Blog Features Skillbuilding Lectures from NGS Conference

It is not Friday, but I have a blog I would love to feature and recommend that others follow. This is the BCG SpringBoard: News and Notes blog. It is sponsored by the Board for Certification of Genealogists and I have found the content useful. Barbara Mathews, CG is the primary blogger, but she has had a series of board-certified genealogists featured as guest bloggers over the past week. They have written summaries of the lectures in the BCG Skillbuilding track at the National Genealogical Society Conference that was held in Las Vegas from May 8 - 11, 2013

I was able to attend a few of the lectures in this track, but missed many of them as I was only at the conference for 2 1/2 days, and spent some of my time networking and presenting my own lecture. I enjoyed the summaries of each presentation on this blog.

JAMB, Inc. recorded many of the lectures and will have them available for purchase on CD soon. See the NGS Conference page on their website for more information. I purchased several of the lectures on CD before I left the conference, and have done the same in past years even when I have been unable to attend the conference. This is an excellent way to further your genealogy education and learn from some of the best instructors in genealogy.

You can access some of the posts under "recent posts" on the blog, but not all of them so I decided to share links to the individual posts on the BCG Skillbuilding lecture track at the NGS 2013 conference:
