Excellent ideas, and they all serve the same ultimate goals. You'd think
this was a competitive race though. I think I've kicked open a very pent up
desire to learn here.
Remember though that I have nothing to gain and much to lose since this has
become such a public issue on these lists today, but my intentions are
honest and my motives are to try to make a small contribution to improving
discussions on this subject. The more places people have to turn to deepen
their understanding of source citations (or any other genealogical matter),
the better. Obviously the demand is there for more information, more
opportunities to expand knowledge on this subject. But that's the way
genealogists are built. There's always a greater hunger for new
opportunities to learn than there are venues available, so I'm very pleased
to see this sudden creative response to a long neglected need.
I hope some of the people who have joined the yahoo study group also take
part in these ventures, and bring the ideas and knowledge back to our little
effort in turn. And maybe the reverse will happen too.

I agree that it could work. We just finished the Standards Manual. Perhaps
it is time to move onto systematic EE discussions on TGF.
Or another approach is to take the ProGen model and use EE instead of
ProGen. The model has a proven track record and is described in an article
by Angela McGhie in an APG Quarterly. The model includes smaller groups for
manageable discussions but with an experienced mentor. The mentor does not
lead the group but only advises and acts as a resource. It works well and
lets peers step up and practice leadership skills. Of course those peer
leaders have to be found -- and the more the merrier. No kings or queens
It will be interesting to see how this resolves.
