Jefferson County Genealogical Society To Host Elizabeth Shown Mills

Jefferson County Genealogical Society is planning a very special seminar for 2008, the 25th anniversary year of their organization, so mark your calendars now for Saturday, March 8th, 2008.

“Elizabeth Shown Mills, CG, CGL, FASG, FNGS, FUGA, the author of such genealogical standards as Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace and Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers and Librarians as well as the historical novel, Isle of Canes, and over 500 journal and magazine articles related to family history will be our speaker.

“Cited by her colleagues as “the person who has had the most impact on family history in the post-Roots era”, Ms. Mills’ accomplishments in and contributions to the field of genealogy are too numerous to mention. But a few include being past editor of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and a regular speaker at the NGS conferences; many TV and radio appearances; president of the Board for Certification of Genealogists and the American Society of Genealogists; and instructor at Samford University Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research.

Look for reservation forms to be available in the near future.”
