Subject: [APG] Advanced Genealogy Discussion Group
Date: Tue, 17 Feb 2004 11:13:19 -0000

The Great Lakes Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists is sponsoring an Advanced Genealogy Discussion Group. The next meeting is on Saturday, March 13, 2004.

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 second Saturday of the month, starting at 10:00 am, at the Medina County District Library annex meeting room. The library is located at 210 South Broadway St., Medina, OH. The meetings last about one and one-half hours. There will be no meetings in July, August, or December.

The discussions are free but pre-registration is required. Any experienced genealogical researcher is welcome to attend.

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 March 13, 2004 discussion appeared in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Vol. 91, no.1, March 2003. It is titled "Thornton Violett: Two Men or One?" beginning on page 31.

To register, or for any questions, contact Donna Gruber at or
