In May 2017 I began an 18 month long Professional Genealogy study group. The ProGen Program is a great way to prepare for becoming a Certified Genealogist (CG) by a national organization.
In November 2018 the study program ended for my group.
Yesterday in the mail I received my certification of completion and participation in the study group.
Now next goal is going through the certification process.
Thanks to all the leaders and fellow students I worked with the last year and half.
As of yesterday, I will be giving four Genealogy presentations across the state of Wisconsin at local libraries and Community Centers.
This year a business goal is to increase the number of speaking engagements. So far on target.
Happy New Year

I recently found my Grandma Erenstina Wendtland and her faternal twin brother Wiehelm/Wilhelm Wendtland confirmation gift booklets given on April 27, 1902 by the Lutheran pastor in Lyndon Station, WI. The readings are all in German and printed out of St. Louis, Missouri by Concordia Publishing house. The church was part of the Missouri synod at the time. Both children’s parents immigrated from Germany/Prussia circa 1880.
