Featuring Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, CGL, FASG, FNGS, FUGA

4 January 2011 – The National Genealogical Society’s latest video for members, Empathy and the Analytical Process, is a short conversation with National Genealogical Society Quarterly co-editor Tom Jones. In this three minute film Tom reflects on the role of empathy in the analytical process, how it transports him from the 21st century into the lives of his ancestors and leads to solving genealogical problems. Produced by Kate Geis and Allen Moore.
