Benefits of CPGC Membership

  • Professional development: The first hour of each meeting is devoted to professional development through our programming activities.
  • Networking: Meet, discuss, and learn from other genealogy professionals.
  • Volunteer: We partner with local community organizations to bring Ancestor Roadshows to their town. Volunteer to be one of our on-site genealogists.
  • Government relations: We engage with government officials to influence legislation that affects the genealogical community.
  • Increase your visibility: We provide potential clients access to our list of members.
