On the third Wednesday of every month at 1:00, 3:00, and 5:00 p.m., professional genealogists from the Greater Philadelphia Area Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) will be available to help take your family history research to the next level. These one-on-one consultations are designed for beginner and experienced genealogists alike. 

The Greater Philadelphia Area Chapter brings together a group of experienced researchers whose expertise spans the whole gamut of genealogy. Whether you are looking for a lost ancestor, filling out the limbs on your family tree, unsure of where to start or look next, personal consultations with APG professionals offer guidance and knowledge for genealogists at all stages of their research. 

During the sixty minute consultation, you will have the opportunity to learn with award-winning* genealogists of APG, exploring all stages of your current and planned family history research: 

  • Review the records and sources already explored to determine where to look next
  • Develop a research plan
  • Explore the collections of HSP and online genealogical databases
  • Get advice on "breaking through" a brick wall research problem

Space is limited—reserve your consult today!

After completing the registration process, you'll be directed to a research questionnaire. Please complete and submit this questionnaire as soon as possible. For further information, please contact Chris Damiani at

*The Association of Professional Genealogists honored members of its Greater Philadelphia Chapter with the 2015 Golden Chapter Award, reflecting the chapter’s status as one of the best in the nation.
