ICAPGen Celebrates 50 Years At their Fall Conference on November 1!

The International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists (ICAPGen) will be holding their annual Fall Conference on Saturday, November 1st on the campus of Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. The conference will be celebrating 50 years of accreditation. There will be seven different daylong tracks featuring 42 speakers. General registration for the full, daylong conference is $70 and includes the gala full luncheon.

The tracks include:

Preparing for Accreditation
Professional Research
DNA/Genetic Genealogy

National Genealogical Society (NGS) Board member, Angie Bush MS (Biotechnology), will be teaching and coordinating the Genetic Genealogy track. The track will focus on helping genealogists incorporate DNA testing into their research plans, and for professionals -- into their client reports. This is the first time ICAPGen has offered a DNA track. Genetic genealogy is currently one of the hottest topics at national seminars and events, with classes filling up and selling out quickly. This daylong opportunity is one not to be missed by genealogists looking to understand this exciting new source.

David Rencher, Chief Genealogical Officer for Family Search, will be presenting the keynote address. Other speakers include Ancestry.com’s Crista Cowan and Kory Meyerink. Additional information about the conference, presenters and tracks can be found at www.ica,pgen.org.
