Chapter Information

The APG Heartland Chapter was organized in 2001 to promote the objectives of the Association of Professional Genealogists and to provide networking and educational opportunities for its members. Our members reside throughout the heartland states of Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska.

The Heartland Chapter is the 2019 recipient of the Golden Chapter Award "for assisting with the 2018 APG Professional Management Conference" held in Kansas City.

In 2017, the chapter received the Golden Chapter Award Honorable Mention award "for utilizing a mix of informal meetings, programs, and virtual offerings resulting in several new members."
