Special Interest Groups

APG Special Interest Groups (SIGs) exist to support professional development and deepening of networks among APG members in a specific area of knowledge, learning, or technology. SIGs are open to APG members only. They offer a forum for members with similar interests and challenges to interact with each other and develop a resource network, to share their experience and knowledge with like-minded professionals, and to further promote their area of interest within the larger genealogical community or to the public.
