APG logoAre you a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG)?

If so, you’ll want to be sure to open up the July APG eNews that arrived in your email inbox.  It features an interview with Diana Elder, AG®, on the benefits of accreditation, and promotes the presentation Diana, along with Julie Stoddard, AG, will give at the October APG Professional Management Conference.  Their presentation,  “Accreditation: A Pathway to Becoming a Better Researcher” should give our organization some great representation. The APG PMC will take place October 4-6 in Kansas City, Missouri.

If you are not already a member of APG, you might consider the benefits of joining.  Their directory is widely used by individuals looking to hire researchers, their publications are excellent resources for professional researchers, and members are respected by the genealogy community.  The annual Professional Management Conference features sessions specifically geared to the professional genealogist. APG is also a great way to network with other professionals.

 

“News and Views”: a monthly digest of ICAPGen blog posts

news-and-views-8

Have you been enjoying ICAPGen’s (SM) monthly newsletter “News and Views?” News and Views pulls posts from the previous month of the ICAPGen blog and presents them in one convenient publication.  This  is an easy way to get ICAPGen news delivered to your email “in” box in a digest format.

If you’ve wondered why dates of the newsletter articles predate the newsletter’s issue date—articles in the September 1st newsletter are dated August 31, 26, 16, 12, and 5, for example—we can solve that mystery for you…

On the first of each month the newsletter automatically pulls content from the previous 30 days of our blog, keeping the original dates for the articles. So those are the dates the articles were first posted on the ICAPGen blog.  Mystery solved!

If you’d like to receive News and Views just send an email to dayna.jacobs@icapgen.org.
