LONDON, U.K. and WESTMINSTER, Colo., February 25, 2010—The Association of Professional Genealogists (APG®) is participating in the Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE 2011, today through Sunday, in London, U.K. Visitors to the APG stand (#519) will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn the benefits of hiring professional genealogists who adhere to genealogical standards and ethics.
