Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS
Tom has been pursuing his ancestry since 1963. For the first twenty-five years he was clueless about what he was trying to accomplish and how to do it. When he started climbing the genealogy learning curve he repeatedly experienced the challenges, joys, and rewards of tracing ancestors reliably and fully understanding their lives. Tom eventually became an award-winning writer, board-certified genealogist, co-editor of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, recipient of honors from genealogical organizations, and author of the popular textbook Mastering Genealogical Proof. Using his nearly lifelong teaching career as a springboard, he enjoys teaching at weeklong genealogy institutes, weekend seminars, and local, national, and international genealogy conferences.
