As a result of a generous offer from FamilySearch, APG is making available three presentations from the 2009 APG Professional Management Conference, which took place on September 2 at the FGS Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas.
In the past, APG sponsored a public mailing list dedicated to discussing topics of interest to genealogical professionals, individuals considering the profession
of genealogy, family historians, and others seeking professional networking and advice. Although this list is no longer active, the archives remain available for public reading.
Archives for the APG Mail List discussions hosted on RootsWeb (August 1998 to 26 Aug 2009) can be searched at
Browse the online archives by conversation thread, subject, author, or date for mailing list postings dated
August 2009 to July 2011.
