As well as having a career as a professional genealogist, Pat devoted much time to researching a relative who was awarded the Victoria Cross. Many of her projects led to fascinating and extraordinary coincidences, and to lectures that captivated and entertained her listeners. Though retired, she intends to keep up contact with her colleagues by attending AGI events.
At AGI’s Annual General Meeting in December, a constitutional amendment was passed to allow the Council to confer emeritus status on members or associate members who have retired. The status is not automatic on retirement; it recognises a long and valued association with AGI.
