APG Pushes for Open Records

One of Several Posts about Open Government Laws and Genealogy

Coincident with our series of posts about open government records, the Association of Professional Genealogists has released a position paper entitled "The Case for Open Records." Appropriately, it was a project of APG's Sunshine state [Florida] chapter.

Last Friday, APG issued a press release about the position paper, which has also been endorsed by the National Genealogical Society, The Federation of Genealogical Societies, and the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies.

I'll have more on the position paper later this week.

Note: Mention of this APG press release and position paper first appeared in DearMyrtle's blog, on Friday, March 21, 2008.
