The Scottish Genealogy Network's CPD day - review
Yesterday, the Scottish Genealogy Network held its first CPD day at the University of Stirling. It was just over a year ago that several professional genies in Scotland had a dinner in Dundee one night and decided we wanted to do more to keep pushing ourselves, and to help others who wished to push themselves, by way of a programme of continuous professional development. Over the last year we've been garnering interest within the genealogy community here in Scotland, holding informal monthly meetings to network across the country, arranging visits to archived repositories and libraries, and yesterday we finally achieved our first formal development session.
You can read what we got up to - and what we plan to get up to! - at the SGN blog at http://scottishgenealogynetwork.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/scottish-genealogy-networks-first-cpd.html.
My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword.
