Hiring a Professional A-Z
Janice Lovelace, Jill
Steven W. Morrison
About the Program:
Lovelace, Jill Morelli, and Steven W. Morrison
will provide three mini-presentations related to
hiring a professional genealogist. All are members
of the Puget Sound Chapter of the Association of
Professional Genealogists (PS-APG).
begin with “What to expect from a Professional
Genealogist.” She will describe what professional
genealogists do and what the letters behind their
name mean. Jill will then speak on “Client -
Professional Relationships.” She will describe how
to hire a professional and some of the details.
Steven will finish up with “How about Hiring an
Agent Across the Pond.” Since much of his personal
research has involved records in Ireland and the
United Kingdom, he will highlight some do’s and
don’ts. A question and answer period will follow.
Please join us.
