The Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) is pleased to announce having contracted with Chris Paton of Scotland to edit their monthly eNews and with Theresa McVean of Ontario, Canada, as advertising sales manager.

Chris Paton has spent three decades in communication industries, including twelve years as a television documentary maker in England and Scotland both with the BBC and Scottish Television. Originally from Northern Ireland, Chris has been a professional genealogist in Scotland since 2006. In December 2021 he volunteered to edit the eNews, allowing APG to resurrect this important communication tool.

Theresa McVean is a professional genealogist and co-founder of Ancestree Detectives. She is active in APG as chair of the Ontario Chapter and a volunteer on the marketing committee. She is also a marketing consultant with experience as director of advertising sales at Canadian media companies, as well as having been senior account manager in advertising sales at The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper.

“We are very excited to welcome Chris and Theresa to our team of contractors. The eNews is our primary tool for communication to our members,” said Annette Burke Lyttle, APG president. “Chris has been doing a great job as interim editor, and we’re happy to have him continue. Theresa’s professional background in advertising sales will be a huge asset to the association.”
