Is it possible to take APN's (Assessor's Parcel Number) and create a shapefile that can be used to show the parcel boundaries? I'm brand new to this and I cannot find any information on it. Thank you for your time and help!

They are jurisdiction based.  Check with the area you are interested in, they may have maps available of means to look them up

Yes, I have the APNs, but I have no other access to the location of the parcel data. I was more asking about how to extrapolate location data from the APNs. Fortunately, I was able to locate an ownership shapefile from the County with existing attribute table that I was able to search expressions for. I input (individually, which is not ideal) each APN into the select by attributes and created a layer for each APN and then shut the main ownership shp off. This worked out, but it was very time consuming. I'll keep digging.
