Although I was not able to attend the 2nd life chat on Tuesday, I did listen to the presentation by Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS. Because I wasn’t at the meeting, I didn’t get to hear the homework assignment. (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it)
In her blog, DearMYRTLE posted some feedback from the Study Group.
I think that I have been using the Inferential Genealogy approach but certainly not organized as was explained in the presentation and the hand out. So, I thought I would give it a try.
