The Research Assistance activity is sponsored by the Southern California Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (SCCAPG). Consultant slots are listed in half-hour increments but we ask that you limit your consulting time to 20-25 minutes in order for people to move out and in. As a consultant, you will also receive prior notice of the people who have signed up for your slots so, if you choose, you may contact them in advance.

NOTE: You need not be certified, accredited, be a member of APG, or any other specific organization to assist people - just a desire to help is all that is required.
