Videos: QuickLessons Study Group

DearREADERS,
New followers may benefit from our ESM’s Quick Lesson Study Group wherein we discussed the works of Elizabeth Shown Mills. Our syllabus material included the QuickLessons located at EvidenceExplained.com.  Study group panel participants prepared in advance for each session, submitting homework describing how the principles discussed in that week’s specific QuickLesson have and or will have an impact in our own genealogical research. Embedded below is the YouTube version (without comments and notes). It is in “playlist format” meaning when one video has played, then next on the list will begin automatically. If you wish to view the video and all comments/links posted during the live hangout, that listing appears below the playlist video.

It would seem to Ol’ Myrt here that studying the works of our genealogical standard bearers is the best way to improve one’s research methodology.

Happy family tree climbing!

DearMYRTLE,
Your friend in genealogy.
