The first publication by Gorry Research is Credentials for Genealogists: Proof of the Professional by Paul Gorry. It is very much a defence of accreditation within professional genealogy. There are long-established accrediting organisations in various parts of the world. They issue credentials to tested practitioners in order to provide a guarantee of competence to the general public and to provide the practitioners with proof of their expertise. However, there are more unaccredited than accredited individuals in the world and Paul Gorry argues that this is not a good situation for the profession as a whole. The book is aimed primarily at people working in (or thinking of working in) genealogical research, but it would also inform potential clients about what to look for in a professional.
