There are two study groups that formed from the TGF list. The first group
studies articles from the *NGS Quarterly *following the Litchman model.
The second are the *ProGen* study groups (there are three now) and they
study *Professional Genealogy*, the manual edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills.
The monthly program includes reading chapters, discussing the topic online
with group members, completing assignments to apply the principles and
practice the skills, and offering constructive feedback to each other.
If you are interested in participating in either of these study groups then
please contact me at
