Now a member of the APG

I've dithered for a long time about whether to join a professional genealogy organisation, but have finally signed up to the internationally recognised Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), which is based in the United States.

Essentially this means that I agree to abide by the organisation's code of ethics (see www.apgen.org/ethics/index.html) within my genealogical research work, and at the same time it allows for any future clients to have a form of redress should they be unhappy with any work that I do (I haven't had a complaint yet - touch wood! lol)

My APG profile is now online at www.apgen.org/directory/search_detail.html?mbr_id=4730. In the interests of fair competition, I should add that there are six other genealogists currently registered with the APG in Scotland, and many more across the British Isles.

In a nutshell - consider me now regulated! I look forward to helping with any future enquiries...
