I just found links on two of my favorite family history blogs (Renee's Genealogy Blog and Geneabloggers) about this new survey by Myles Proudfoot.
Myles Proudfoot attended the recent RootsTech 2011 conference and left wanting to find out more about the next generation of genealogists. He has a 15 year background in market and consumer research with a large consumer goods company, as well as a long term interest in family history.
His survey attempts to measure the habits of beginner, amateur and professional genealogists, including their methodologies, the resources they use and much more. This is also a good way to accurately measure the current way we do our thing, as well as let our cumulative voices be heard by family history vendors, service providers, conference planners and organization boards what we hope to see in the genealogy field in the future.
The survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. I just took it and am passing along the link in case you'd like to join as well ...
