Jones, Thomas W


Since 2008 Dr. Jones has coordinated “Writing and Publishing for Genealogists” at IGHR. From 2003 through 2018 he co-edited sixty-four issues of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, in which every article is thoroughly edited for clarity, conciseness, and consistency. He has authored thirty articles published in peer reviewed genealogical journals and twenty-two articles in other genealogical publications. He has produced two textbooks with exercises, Mastering Genealogical Proof and Mastering Genealogical Documentation. Holder of two graduate degrees in education, he teaches online and in person at genealogical institutes and seminars locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
