19:07:47 From Deb Andrew : The only real difference between the two should be one is paid and the other is not, but both should have the same standards.
19:08:12 From Maria Capaldi to All panelists : Yes!
19:08:37 From Betty-Lu Burton : Another difference would be a professional genealogist work should be more formal
