  • ProGen Study Groups alumni can access hundreds of example submissions within the resources area of their website.
  • Read “Creating and Using Locality Guides as Genealogical Tools” by Jan Joyce, DBA, CG, CGL, AG in the NGS Magazine July-September 2022, Volume 48, Number 3.
  • Google “Genealogy Locality Guide” and find multiple blogs about the subject!


  1. Was wondering if occasionally, we could have a hangout which is 7pm EST so that Australians can hang out too…as it would be 11am here….not 3am 😉

    • Yes, our next Hangout will be at 8pm Eastern. We will definitely move the times around to try to include different time zones. Thank you!
