Skillbuilding


Sample Work Products

As instructive models for your own work products, you will find quality examples of genealogies, proof arguments, and research reports in PDF format on the Sample Work Products page.

Document Samples

The Board has created transcriptions and abstracts of three document samples similar to BCG-supplied and applicant-supplied documents for application portfolios. These items are available on the Document Samples page.

Genealogy Standards Comparison Charts

BCG first codified genealogical standards in The BCG Genealogical Standards Manual in 2000. It updated, reorganized, expanded, and clarified those standards in Genealogy Standards in 2014. These two charts offer a comparison of the new and old standards for users wishing to familiarize themselves with the changes.
