BCG Certification

Well, I have finally submitted my BCG (Board for the Certification of Genealogists) portfolio. Now I wait for the judges to grade it before I receive the results. No matter the outcome, the process has been a great experience. I have improved my research procedures and honed my skills when it comes to applying the GPS (Genealogical Proof Standard) to research projects. These advancements in my processes are a benefit to my clients, and I take pride in offering clients my services while following the BCG Code of Ethics.
            To present clients upfront with your terms and practices is important to both parties so everything is understandable and neither party loses time or money. Communication is one of the most important factors to make each and every research project as productive as possible.
