The BCG Education Fund, a Massachusetts charitable trust, is accepting applications for the annual Donald Mosher Memorial Award. Application deadline each year is 20 February. The annual $500 grant, established in 2001 by Merrill Hill Mosher, CG, of Coos Bay, Oregon, in memory of her late husband, funds scholarly research on Colonial Virginia topics in the following categories: family genealogy, study of immigrant origins, or projects focused on obscure or difficult unpublished Virginia resources. Announcement of the winning entry and presentation of the Award occur at the National Genealogical Society Conference. Additional information is online at http://www.bcgcertification.org/educationfund/. Interested applicants may also contact the Donald Mosher Memorial Award Administrator, Beverly Rice, CG, at MosherAward@bcgcertification.org.

The BCG Education Fund also offers the following educational outreach programs.

Helen F. M. Leary Distinguished Lecture Series

The series, initiated in 2007, honors Helen F. M. Leary of North Carolina, Certified Genealogist (Emeritus) and a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists, known for her richly informative and entertaining lectures on methodology, law, writing, and the art of lecturing to mention only a few. In April 2010, Patricia Walls Stamm, CG, CGL, will present the Leary Distinguished Lecture at the National Genealogical Society Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Pat will address “A Matter of Diversity: Expanding Your Genealogical Skills Through Education." In August 2010, Laura Murphy DeGrazia, CG, will present the Leary Distinguished Lecture at the Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference in Knoxville, Tennessee. Laura’s topic is "What is a Reasonably Exhaustive Search?"

Putting Skills to Work

This is a unique full-day, hands-on workshop limited to sixty participants. The focus is genealogical skills needed by anyone practicing serious genealogical research whether as a family historian, librarian, dedicated hobbyist, or writer. The material is geared to intermediate and advanced practitioners and advocates professional standards. Putting Skills To Work sessions occur the day prior to the opening of the National Genealogical Society Conference. It is not necessary to register for the entire Conference to participate in Putting Skills To Work. The $90 registration fee includes two in-depth presentations, hands-on exercises, syllabus, handouts, and lunch. Sessions normally book to capacity far ahead of the Conference registration deadline.

Previous Putting Skills To Work topics include abstracting records, efficient research planning, report writing, composing genealogical narratives, compiling proof summaries, evidence evaluation principles, citations and documentation requirements, and in-depth guidance for writing a family history.

2010 sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, 27 April, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Instructors are Pamela Boyer Sayre, CG, CGL, presenting “Synchronized Research and Reporting” and Kip Sperry, AG, CG, CGL, presenting “Reading Early Handwriting.”

Planning for our programs at the 2011 NGS Conference in Charleston, South Carolina, is already underway.
