What I Did On My Summer Vacation – 2016 Version

After a lengthy hiatus I’m returning to posting—a hiatus for which I have an excuse.

Don’t you remember having to write an essay on this subject upon your first day of school after a summer vacation. Fortunately for you, the reader, there is no travelog, no vacation photographs and no essay.

However, there is this image of a certificate I received for my summer efforts which was participation in the on-line fifteen week Genealogical Research Certificate Program from Boston University (10 May—22 August 2016):

Receipt of the certificate meant I satisfactorily completed the prescribed sequence of courses and took a step towards my educational preparation for the certification application process as defined by the Board of Certification of Genealogists®—a year long process.

I know it’s been a month since the completion of the course. That time has been spent on projects which were postponed due to the course and analyzing the rubrics of the certification application process—the documented expectations by which a submitted portfolio is evaluated and scored to ascertain proficiency.

There is much to do so I best get with it.
