Genealogy Education

For those readers who teach classes on genealogy or plan genealogy events, there is a relatively new blog to help you with your genealogy education. The blog was started in December 2005 by Kenneth G. Aitken, Local and Family History Lecturer, Instructor and Researcher. He resides in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Here is a short excerpt from his biography on the site.

Ken holds a BA in Linguistics, and a Master of Library Science degree from the University of British Columbia. He has also undertaken course work in local and family history with Brigham Young University and with the University of British Columbia.

Mr. Aitken is Vice-President of the Genealogical Speakers Guild and a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. Ken has been a professional genealogist for over 25 years, a genealogy librarian for over 20 years and an adult educator for more than 40 years. He is currently focusing on genealogical education.

Active in genealogical organizations for many years Ken was charter president of the Hambrook Family History Society and served for 15 years as editor of the journal of that society. With the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society he served as a branch chairman, a director and as second vice-president of the Society. In the Association of Professional Genealogists, Ken is a member of the publications committee.

I suggest checking out his site for tips on educating others or just educating yourself on genealogy. His blog is called Genealogy Education.


Thank you for mentioning my blog. I certainly invite your readers to visit my blog daily, and see just what sort of wierd ideas I come up with next. There is always something for the genealogist, the genealogy teacher, speaker and program planner.
