Book Description

Sept. 12 2006

Here are 102+ ways to use training in family history and genealogy when applied to real-world careers in education, business, or government, including creative entrepreneurial start-ups.

With the future marriage of genealogy to smart cards, online databases, or similar authentication technology for family history, population registration (census), and library research, it may be easier to research family lines, not only by DNA matches through DNA testing for deep ancestry, but also with smart, electronic cards designed for electronic identity. It's also a way to track military records as another way to trace family history.

Careers and research may focus on various state libraries or historical associations. History and family studies are part of an interdisciplinary liberal arts program that emphasizes research and writing. Journalism courses help round out your ability to express in plain language the results of your reading, explorations, and interpretations.

Obtaining a degree or even taking one course or self-study in Family History can lead to broad, interdisciplinary careers. Graduate work in library science, law, journalism, public history, or genetics counseling (with a double major in the life sciences and social work) also lead to careers in which an historical education may be used. Public history is a field where you can pursue graduate degrees, including a doctorate. A degree in family history and/or public history can lead to entrepreneurship or becoming a corporate executive.

Most jobs don't require a specific major, but rather analytical training and training in writing. If you're interested in taking courses or obtaining a degree or doing graduate work in history, family, home, social science, or area studies, focus on obtaining those analytical skills and good journalism skills for expressing in plain language for the public what you learned in your history and genealogy courses. See the personal history course link at http://www.newswriting.net.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternative careers for people interested in family history July 6 2013
By Retiree - Published on Amazon.com
Apply your interest in family history to a list of alternative and related careers. Always look at the book before you buy it, since you can always browse the book free at the publishers sight. That way you'll know whether the information is what you want from any given book. It saves a lot of time so that readers can find specifically what they want from any book instead of buying a self-published or print-on-demand book first and then finding it's not what you want, when just by browsing the publisher's site for the book, you can quickly see whether the information you're looking for is in the book. Sure saves a lot of time. Thank you for this book since it lists information on a wide number of topics such as back door genealogy and where to take courses. This entire family enjoyed the book because it helps those with an interest in family history get ideas on creating their own businesses. Kudos.

2.0 out of 5 stars rehash July 10 2009

Ms. Hart has written this same information in a couple of books. The same chapters are repeated here. If more information was available in the description, I wouldn't have purchased this as I already have her earlier book. I was looking more for a how-to rather than a list of possible job positions. And her list of eastern-European countries was of no interest to me with my heritage of western European background.
