Last week Kenyatta Berry, the president of the Association of Professional Genealogists, joined me on The Forget-Me-Not Hour show. Kenyatta packed the interview with so much information about the APG!
She discussed how the organization has evolved since its inception in the 1970s to its current focus on the business of professional genealogy and how the process of forming the APG mission is done. To that end the APG has webinars for professional development, the annual Professional Management Conference (PMC) in Salt Lake City (next year in March), the APG Quarterly magazine, and more. She talked about other aspects of is mission, such as advocacy for preserving documents.
Kenyatta explained how find a professional genealogist through the APG website (www.apgen.org) and gave great suggestions on how to vet one to do research for you.
