ProGen Study Groups Sponsored Breakfast

New to the conference schedule this year are breakfast buffets on Thursday morning, May 9th at 7:00a.m. One of these breakfasts is sponsored by the ProGen Study Program and will provide an opportunity for prospective students, current participants, alumni, and mentors of the study program to network together. All are welcome to attend.

The ProGen Study Program is made of up twenty online groups studying Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers and Librarians, edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills. Participants work together in this collaborative program to develop professional genealogy research, writing, and business skills.

If you are thinking of transitioning from genealogy hobbyist to professional, then come and network with the program participants and alumni. All study group members are invited to come and meet their virtual colleagues. For more information on the study groups please see
