APG Heartland Chapter

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 received the Golden Chapter Award in 2008 and 2011. In 2017, the chapter received the Golden Chapter Award Honorable Mention "for utilizing a mix of informal meetings, programs, and virtual offerings resulting in several new members."
