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.

Mark Fearer presents:

"Finding Your Immigrant Ancestors"

Description: Although immigration was almost as controversial for our ancestors as it is today, a good family historian or genealogist needs to understand the myths, history, resources and websites to find our ancestors. We will focus on peak U.S. immigration, from the late 1800s to early 1900s for those who made the brave choice to come here – whether they became a citizen or not.
