As your genealogical expertise develops, you may aspire to certification or accreditation. These credentials are sought, not only by those who wish to take clients, but by genealogists eager to do the best possible work. They take the opportunity to measure their skills against the high standards set by the Board for Certification of Genealogists or the Family History Library.
Whether or not you are interested in adding credentials to your name, it's good to get a taste of genealogy's alphabet soup.
