Accredited Genealogists Ireland admits new Affiliates

Accredited Genealogists Ireland (AGI) has announced that two more genealogists have recently been admitted as Affiliates of the association. The Affiliate category was introduced by AGI as a stepping stone towards an application for accreditation from genealogists in the early stage of their transition to professional status.

The two new Affiliates are  Séamus O’Donoghue, who is based in his native Co. Clare, and Des Murtagh, originally from Dublin and now resident in Co. Kildare.

AGI has limited places in the Affiliate programme, partly because each Affiliate is matched with a mentor from within the body of accredited Members.  To date there have been fifteen Affiliates and six of them have progressed through the accreditation process to becoming Members (MAGIs). See the AGI website for more information about the Affiliate programme.
