Northland Chapter

Northland Chapter Logo

The Northland Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists was organized in 2010. Our chapter strives to promote the highest standards of ethics and professionalism in the genealogical field at the regional level. We especially invite members from Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Other APG members are also welcome. Join us for opportunities to network, learn, and grow as an ethical professional.
