Next LGS Membership Meeting - June 12, 2024

Mark Fearer and Sylvia Tracy-Doolos present:

"What is a Professional Genealogist and How Can a Professional Benefit Me?"

Description: The National Genealogical Society (NGS) defines professional genealogy as "a person who is paid for research that is based on his or her training and qualifications". The Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) additionally requires that its members uphold a Code of Ethics and Professional Practices. Mark and Sylvia are both members of the APG and will answer your questions about the courses they have taken to prepare to become professionals and how they have applied what they have learned to be efficient and effective researchers.
