Every year or so this discussion seems to come up - what exactly is a professional genealogist. Does the term "professional" apply to the profession, as in someone who makes a living or earns income in the field of genealogy? Does "professional" apply to experience or proficiency? As in a genealogist who has many years of experience and training, specific skills and/or high-quality work? How about credentials? Does "professional" imply that the genealogist has received certification? In other words, does the term "professional" relate to how a genealogist makes a living, the skills and experience he/she brings to the field, or the time devoted to genealogy research?

Where do you weigh in on this issue?

[Yes, I grabbed the idea from About.com]

What an awesome question Bob. I don't care where you got the idea from..I would love to hear what people have to say about this. Why don't also set up a poll once you get some answers (or before if you like). We need a new one..
