Dear Fellow Genealogists,

I would like to  invite anyone interested to take part in contributing to a scholarly discussion about Helen Leary's On-Board article, Volume 4, Number 2, May  1998 on the TheoryGen email list beginning the morning of Monday, June 7th and ending the evening of Saturday, June 12th.  The article may be  found in its entirety at  http://bcgcertification.org/publications/onboard/article3.html   In order to be prepared for the discussion, please read the entire  article.  It is entitled:  "Reporting Standards: Client Research  v. Personal Research."  

Topics to be discussed include:  

1.  double standards for genealogical  research
2.  ethical standards and obligations to  clients
3.  importance of the report versus the research for  clients
4.  importance of the report versus the research for  yourself
5.  fraud 
6.  a quality report

A summary of  the discussion and findings will be written and available by Monday, June  14th for everyone to read.  Those interested in participating and  reading the opinions of fellow genealogists regarding the topics in 
this  article, will need to join the TheoryGen email list if you are not 
already a  member.

Theorygen is a Yahoo group, so if you don't already have a Yahoo ID  
(similar to a Google ID, for example) you'll see an option to register.  
Registration is straightforward.  Once you're subscribed to the group 
can then set your preferences as to whether you want posts forwarded to a particular email account, or viewed only by reading them on the list's 
web page 
(where they also appear).  You will have the ability to upload files, 
suggest links, create polls, and maintain complete control over your own posts.  For example, you can delete any post that you have sent to the 
group.  Nothing sent to Theorygen will be permanently archived.  And 
no search engine can pick up anything posted to this list.   If you have any problems subscribing, please contact Larry at laboswell at rogers.com for help.
