NGS 2022 Speaker Spotlight – Tom Jones

April 18th, 2022 by Roger Prince

It Gets Even Better Offline–Tom Jones

SESSION: W155 TRACK: Methodology  TITLE:  It Gets Even Better Offline

Tom Jones is back with another fascinating talk.  This time he will present three case studies that demonstrate how leads developed using online research led to materials not available online.  Those less common sources proved to be the keys to solving genealogical problems.

Jones was co-editor of NGSQ from 2003 to 2018 and is a past APG board member and BCG trustee and president. He teaches at GRIP, IGHR, and SLIG and at local, state, national, and international conferences, seminars, and workshops, in-person and virtually. Jones is a genealogical researcher, writer, editor, and educator with nearly sixty years of research and teaching experience.

He is perhaps best known to most family historians for his two books, Mastering Genealogical Proof and Mastering Genealogical Documentation, which are used as textbooks in many genealogical certification programs. His talks are always well attended, and NGS is happy to have him returning once again to the annual in-person conference.

Tom Jones is a strong advocate for the annual NGS conference and genealogy conferences in general.  See the post How NGS Conferences Shaped Tom Jones as a Genealogist for his take on the unique value of in-person conference attendance.

Remember that registration for  on-site 2022 conference attendees has been extended to May 13th and full refunds are available until May 1st.
