The Great Lakes Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists is sponsoring an Advanced Genealogy Discussion Group. The next meeting is on Saturday, January 15, 2005.
The purpose of the group is to discuss advanced genealogical methodology as presented in case studies that have appeared in various scholarly genealogical publications.
The group meets the *third* Saturday of the month, starting at 10:00 am, at the Akron-Summit County Public Library, meeting room 3. The library is located at 60 South High St., Akron, OH. The meetings last about one and one-half hours. *Note change of location.*
The discussions are free but pre-registration is required. Any experienced genealogical researcher is welcome to enroll.
As a pre-requisite, participants should be familiar with Dr. William M. Litchman's article, "Teaching Analysis, Logic, and the Research Process: A Seminar Approach", from the NGS News Magazine, Nov/Dec 2000, pages 340-343.
Each participant is requested to read several times, in advance of the meeting, the article to be discussed at the meeting. The article chosen for the January 15, 2005 discussion appeared in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Vol. 92, no.3, September 2004. It is titled "Identifying John Tapper, a German Immigrant Laborer in Early Nineteenth-Century Philadelphia, through the Records of His Children" beginning on page 165.
