If you are considering becoming a professional genealogist or starting your own business, watch the recording of today's webinar co-presented by John Kitzmiller and Claire Brisson-Banks, and sponsored by the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (ICAPGen). They discussed the two credentialing organizations - ICAPGen and the Board for Certification of Genealogists, what it takes to run a genealogy business, and then had a great question/answer session.
