Every five years Accredited Genealogist® researchers have the opportunity to renew their AG credentials. The renewal process requires a 5-7 page report or a published article, a summary of genealogical activities, and a list of education and skill-building activities, and a signed ethics agreement.
One way to make the renewal process easier is to keep a running list of genealogical activities you are involved in, as well as a running list of education and skill-building activities you participate in. Every time you attend a conference, present a class, watch a webinar, read a genealogy book, or serve in an organization just add it to your list. When the time comes for renewal you will be all set!
If you are engaged in client work or have your own research projects, just send in one of your client reports or write up your own project–it only needs to be 5-7 pages. Sign in to the ICAPGen webpage and scroll to the bottom of the page for more details on the renewal process.
Recently we have had five individuals renew their credentials and we want to congratulate them:
- Barry Kirk – French Canada
- Lorraine Bourne – Mid-South
- Paula Faccio – Italy
- Joseph Shumway – England
- Margo McKinstry – England
