I am happy to announce that today I received notice from the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) that my portfolio which was submitted in mid-October has been deemed worthy of conferring onto me the title of Certified Genealogist. I am still a bit giddy. I also realize that I will probably forget to do some critical thing in the “fog” of jubilation. As I am leaving on Sunday for Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG), I am vulnerable to forget to pack all I need for their cold weather. Yikes!
I will not stop this blog because I have reached this goal. Like all goals, you need to develop the next before you have attained the last. And, that is certainly true for me. I will discuss goal assessment in the near future.
I thank all the readers for supporting this blog and my efforts to become certified. With certification comes not only the pride of attaining a difficult goal, but also the responsibility to model to others the good work of a certified genealogist.
What I have done since the last blog post: I started bullet journaling because I found myself wasting a lot time and I needed a tool to keep me focused. Except for today– it’s done a good job. I listened to three webinars; attended an APG online discussion, developed my research plans for my trip to Salt Lake City and had lunch with a friend I had lost track of. It’s been, for me, a good day.
