Kathleen, Can you elaborate on what you mean by "the APG Certification
process to verify their proficiency"? In all my years with APG I haven't
heard of this and am curious to know more. Or perhaps you mean BCG?
APG is a membership organization to encourage professionals and
professionalism in genealogy. BCG is an independent certifying body who
tests skills according to standards.

CG and Certified Genealogist are Service Marks of the Board for
Certification of Genealogists, used under license after periodic evaluations
by the Board.
