Becoming a Member
Becoming a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) or, for that matter, the Puget Sound Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (PS-APG), may seem like a big step. Do you have questions and wonder if you are ready?
We suggest that you go to the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) website for more information on membership and join online. Here is the link to the national APG website where the membership benefits are outlined.
The Puget Sound Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (PS-APG) was established in the Summer of 2002 by a group of genealogists in the area who were members of the national Association of Professional Genealogists. They held their first meeting in October 2002. Shortly after by-laws for the chapter were established. You can view the Revised By-Laws by clicking here.
You are welcome to attend PS-APG meetings to get to know us. We welcome guests.
