Lone Star Chapter APG

Organized in 1979, the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit that serves as an umbrella organization for the diverse roles in genealogy. The more than 2,000 US and international members include family historians, professional researchers, librarians, archivists, writers, editors, consultants, indexers, instructors, lecturers, columnists, booksellers, publishers, computer specialists, and geneticists.

The Lone Star Chapter is a regional subgroup of APG. Our members represent the broad spectrum of genealogical pursuits covered by the APG umbrella.

Membership in APG is open to any person or institution willing to support the objectives and the APG Code of Ethics. Membership in the Lone Star Chapter is open to any APG member. Although the majority of Chapter members reside in Texas, we are proud that our rolls have included members who reside in Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.

The Lone Star Chapter supports the objectives of APG:
  • To provide education and support for those engaged in genealogical business pursuits;
  • To engage in activities which improve access, facilitate research, and preserve records used in the fields of genealogy and local history;
  • To promote awareness of activities and/or laws which may affect genealogical and historical research;
  • To facilitate collaboration among members;
  • To promote professional standards in the field of genealogy; and
  • To promote awareness of, and interest in, professional genealogical services.
Additionally, the Lone Star Chapter supports networking opportunities among members and professional and educational growth.
