The Minnesota Manuscript Research Laboratory is a project developed by the Center for Medieval Studies (CMS) of the Institute for Advanced Study in the College of Liberal Arts, University of Minnesota–Twin Cities, in collaboration with the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library at Saint John’s University, Collegeville, Minnesota.
The Laboratory’s purpose is to provide an orientation to the study of medieval manuscripts and their contents to qualified graduate and undergraduate students, faculty and other interested individuals.
During the week beginning June 3th, 2012, the Laboratory will hold a workshop to give participants a practical, hands-on introduction to the study of manuscripts at an important research center, the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library.
This week, the School started formation of its ALTAIR journal. The journal is peer review and will concern the topics of history, genealogy, heraldry and other documentary sciences. Scholars, Academicians and Researchers are asked to submit articles for publication.
Today, the School submitted over 500 pages of documentation to the College of Teachers in London regarding its course accreditation of the School's Postgraduate Diploma.
Lindgren is a former professor of History and Military Studies at American Military University and works as a dissertation committee external examiner for PhDs at Trident University. He possesses degrees and diplomas from the University of Mississippi (BAE, MEd, SEd), College of Teachers in London (FCP), UNISA (DEd), American Military University and several other schools.
He is Fellow (Academician) of several royal societies and academies including the World Academy of Art and Science, Royal Society of Art (London), Society of Antiquaries Scotland, Royal Anthropological Society of Great Britain, College of Teachers, Academie Belgo-Espagnole d’Histoire, and Academia Americana de Genealogía.
Faculty Members of the American School of Genealogy, Dr. Bruce Durie and John Tunesi of Liongam, recently attended the Who Do You Think You Are? live show in London UK. Jane and John Tunesi of Liongam were our School representatives at the conference.
Billed as ‘The World’s biggest family history show’, Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2012 at Olympia in London UK lived up to its reputation. The weather was glorious, sunshine and mild, you almost forgot that it was February. There plenty of exhibitors: The Society of Genealogists, regional family history societies and commercial companies such as TheGenealogist.co.uk, Family Tree DNA and Ancestry.com, and individual genealogists, professional associations for genealogists, such as APG and AGRA, together with universities, colleges and schools offering academic courses of study. It is also a very good networking opportunity for all family historians and genealogists.
Not to be missed at the show are the Celebrity Theatre interviews with Emilia Fox, Richard Madeley and Larry Lamb who featured in the latest UK WDYTYA? series and the Heirloom Detective, Eric Knowles from the BBC Antiques Roadshow. There were also opportunities to identify and learn more about your military ancestors, learn about trades and professions in the interactive area and ‘ask the expert’ for your family history conundrums.
As usual there were many informative lectures and workshops aimed at all levels of family historians and genealogists. They keynote workshop focussed on the advance of social networking and how it can be used to enhance your research – something I am sure we have all used over the last few years. We attended a couple of lectures whilst we were at the show, ‘Heraldry – why it matters to genealogists’ ” presented by our own Prof. Bruce Durie and also ‘Moving from amateur to professional genealogist’ presented by Eileen O’Duill.
Prof. Durie’s lecture gave a whistle-stop tour of heraldry and how it can aid genealogical research, from a Scottish perspective. Of course, he was preaching to the converted in us Tunesi’s, but it was heartening to see a fair number in the audience. Heraldry is much underrated by family historians who think it is not relevant to their research, but, it is! Mrs O’Duill’s lecture gave good common sense advice and reiteration of the APG Code of Ethics that all genealogists should aspire to. With all the new courses available there is a risk that there will be ‘instant experts’ in our subject, but there is no substitute to years of study and application of genealogical principles that can only come with experience.
Prof. Tunesi helped out on the APG stall and after the show we attended the APG Reception in Pizza Express where we networked with like-minded people, promoted the American School of Genealogy, Heraldry and Documentary Sciences and formally met the APG President, Kenyatta Berry, Executive Director, Kathleen Hinckley and speaker Eileen O’Duill and met up with friends and new acquaintances for the genealogy world.
If you are in London UK next February, why not attend – you won’t be disappointed.
