Death of former AGI President Henry 'Harry' McDowell

Accredited Genealogists Ireland (AGI) has reported the death of one of its founding members and former presidents, Henry "Harry" McDowell.

A professional genealogist since the 1970s, Harry was one of Ireland's longest practising genealogists. He was elected a Fellow of the Irish Genealogical Research Society in 1989, served as President of the County Kildare Archaeological Society from 2000-2004 and was elected a Fellow of AGI in 2011.

In 2015, Dundalgan Press published Irregular Marriages in Dublin Before 1837 – his transcript of the surviving (clandestine) marriage registers of Dublin's Lutheran Reverend Schulze.
