Certified Genealogical Records Specialist (CGRS)
CGRS is the abbreviation for Certified Genealogical Records Specialist.
The postnominal of CGRS was administered by the Board for Certification of Genealogists®. Currently, the Board only awards certifications as a Certified Genealogist (CG) and Certified Genealogical Lecturer (CGL).
Along with the CGRS, the Board previously offered credentials of Certified Lineage Specialist (CLS), Certified American Indian Lineage Specialist (CAILS), and Certified Genealogical Instructor (CGI). These credentials are no longer current, but you might see them in older publications.
