Welcome to the NEAPG
The New England Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (NEAPG) is the local chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG). NEAPG was officially recognized in December 2007, nearly five years after recognition of its parent, the Greater Boston Chapter of APG.
NEAPG is designed to be a place where professionals from a wide variety of specialties can come together with the common ground of genealogy to:
- To promote international awareness of, and interest in, professional genealogical services,
- To promote professional standards in genealogical research, writing and speaking,
- 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 educate the membership and public through publications and lectures, and provide support for those engaged in genealogical pursuits as a business.
Our members represent many different backgrounds and areas of expertise. Members include family historians, professional researchers, librarians, archivists, writers, editors, consultants, indexers, instructors, lecturers, heir searches, house historians, lineage society applications, identification and dating of old photographs, columnists, booksellers, publishers, computer specialists and geneticists.
Members benefit from:
- Bimonthly educational meetings
- Email updates with chapter news and member activities
- Networking opportunities
- Basic listing on chapter website
- Optional expanded listing in chapter brochure (printed and online)
The Chapter also sponsors other activities throughout the year, including advanced genealogy discussions and field trips to major genealogical repositories in the region.
NEAPG has worked with many groups providing their expertise to others. Some of these activities include providing consultants for Ancestor Road Shows for the New England Historic Genealogical Society / Ancestry.com, Massachusetts Society of Genealogists, Massachusetts Genealogical Council.

Looking for a researcher
Many of our professional genealogists will be happy to assist with your research; speak to your group on numerous genealogical topics or provide a variety of other services. Most must charge fees to cover their expenses, investment in their continuing education, acquired experience and valuable time. We know you want excellence in the services you seek and we encourage you to contact our members to see if one can address your needs. Since we travel frequently to attend conferences and conduct research, please allow time for a response to your inquiries. To learn more, see our Directory of Members, all of whom have subscribed to the APG Code of Ethics. For information on the many factors that should be considered when retaining a professional researcher, see APG’s brochure, Hiring a Professional.
