Is anybody currently pursuing the BCG? I've been thinking about it… compiling some notes and general plan for the process.

Getting my CG is on my plan. Well, not sure if I will go the BCG route or the ICAPGEN route (but probably will go for my CG.) It will be a while. I just started ProGen a few months ago and have my certificates through NIGS to finish. Then I can think about it. lol
I'd love to hear what you find and about the process once you start.

Its on my mind also. I've been cleaning up my Ancestry/FTM databases to reflect the BCG citatation standards even though those are evidence rather than conclusion based formats. I had already been writing 'proof arguments' for my personal family site for some time. I've also been transcribing and abstracting for years. Now I have a format to follow.
I won't make my final decision until after FGS-Birmingham. I'll go to the BCG presentation and I'll go by the booth to see sample portfolios. I think that will be the deciding factor for me.
