Our newest AG professionals

Congratulations to our newest Accredited Genealogist® professionals! They have recently succeeded in passing the final phase of the examination process and have been awarded credentials. The ICAPGen℠  website explains the significance of an AG® credential:

“Those who hold the Accredited Genealogist credential have demonstrated knowledge of the key sources, history, geography, methodologies, and language of their region of interest and know how to access those records, wherever they exist, whether it is through personal onsite research, correspondence with repositories, or through a representative onsite. They are also proficient in the use of digitized original sources online. Accredited Genealogist professionals possess the skill to transcribe and abstract handwritten documents, analyze and interpret evidence, and communicate research results in quality written reports.

Examinations are given to applicants demonstrating sufficient theoretical and practical research backgrounds. A different exam is given for each geographical region, so individuals who pass an exam are rightfully designated as research experts in that region. Exams may also include subjects of specialization.”
