Family History Professionals 



The Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) will distribute its latest Directory of Professional Genealogists, a valuable 200-page plus guide to finding and hiring professionals around the world, during October, Family History Month.


The Directory of Professional Genealogists 2004-2005 commemorates APG’s 25th anniversary in 2004, and displays its anniversary logo on the cover. It lists more than 1,400 members throughout the U.S., Canada and 20 other countries. Members are listed alphabetically with available biographical information and are indexed by geographic locations and specialties and by research specialties and related services. Editor of the directory is Anne Lemmon of Salt Lake City, UT.


Complimentary copies of the directory, published biennially in the fall, will be sent to key U.S. libraries, National Archives repositories, selected family history journalists as well as all APG members. The online version of the directory, updated daily, can be found at APG’s Web site,


The print directory may be purchased through the publications section of APG’s Web site for $20 plus postage.
