Let's face it, anyone can hang out a sign and call themselves a professional genealogist. However some are neither trained properly nor properly experienced in the field, with some even hjaving unprofessonal attitudes.

The authors have not find any country that has regulatory licensing to govern the practice and conduct of professional genealogists. You don't hear the usage of  'professial engineer' or 'professional lawyer', and these professions do have self-regulating agencies.

However we are in the habit of using the term 'professional genealogist' to describe a business-person simply because genealogy and family history are the hobby of millions of people worldwide.

If you are, or are wishing to become a professional genealogist, this book describes professional standards and practices for the serious genealogist and family historian. Experience, education, standards, business planning, services and fees, plus much more are covered in these pages.
