APG List Discusses Professional Genealogy

I enjoy the APG (Association of Professional Genealogists) mailing list immensely - there is always good information offered by the leaders of the profession - delivered to my emailbox.

During much of this month, the list has been discussing professional genealogy - education, training, certification, credentials, regulation, licensing, marketing, running a business, research fees, etc.

You can access the September 2006 archives of the APG list here. Scroll down to the posts that start with:

* Working capital for a growing genealogy business
* Five year outlook for genealogical income
* Earning a living
* Professional genealogy

and several other titles in between. You will have to read the entries post by post, but if you are interested in the topic you will enjoy the time.

The discussion has been extremely informative, conducted in a very civilized tone, by some of the best-known genealogists in the USA.
