This weekend is the ICAPGen.org Genealogy Conference. ICAPGen.org is where Genealogists can obtain their Accreditation in Genealogy. There are Genealogists for Hobby, Accredited Genealogists, and Certified Genealogists. My overall goal is to become a Certified Genealogist through the Board of Certified Genealogists. When I made this decision there were three books I bought to help me along with the studying process:Becoming an Accredited Genealogist: Plus 100 Tips to Ensure Your Success, Revised Edition, The BCG Genealogical Standards Manual and Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers, and Librarians. These books were hard to find at the library. However, most of the books you’ll need while studying are available at most libraries.
You can also take many of these classes from ICAPGen.org online free. Hope this helps some who want to learn more about the process of becoming a professional Genealogist.
