Boston University Online Genealogical Research Certification Program

July 27th, 2011 1 comment

I have enrolled in Boston University’s online Genealogical Research Certification Program. I’m hoping this will put me on the path toward board certification. Class starts on September 6 and runs through December 19. The program consists of six modules: Foundations of Genealogical Research, Problem-Solving Techniques and Technology, Evidence Evaluation and Citation, Forensic Genealogical Research, Genealogical Research Ethnic and Geographic Specialties, and The Professional Genealogist. I hope to update my progress throughout the fall.

Dick Waits 18th Armored Replacement Battlion Retouched Picture (Framed)

I had the retouched photograph of United States Army Company B, 18th Armored Replacement Battalion taken January 1941(42?) at Fort Knox, Kentucky framed at Aaron Brothers in Sugar Land, Texas. My great grand uncle, Charles Richard “Dick” Waits, KIA on April 6, 1945, is on the far right, third row from-the-top.

It looks great and will make an outstanding addition to our study. Thanks again to Sue Rizvi for finding and sending the original.
