Books for Professional Genealogists

My article has been published in APGQ (Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly) in the September 2019 issue, pages 17-23. “Books for Professional Genealogists: The Recommendations of Bibliophiles” was a list and description if my favorite books for genealogy, with book lists from other APG members.

APGQ is a subscription quarterly for members of APG. It is also available at some libraries, including the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Other locations can be found on WorldCat.org.

This is my first published article as a genealogist! I look forward to many others.
