Two new Fellows for Accredited Genealogists Ireland

Accredited Genealogists Ireland (AGI) has elected Máire Mac Conghail and Helen Kelly as Fellows of the association. The award of Fellowship recognises “invaluable AGI” or a “particularly outstanding contribution to the study of Irish genealogy”.

Máire and Helen have enjoyed long and successful careers as professional genealogists and have been members of AGI since the 1990s. Both have contributed much time and effort in senior AGI roles, including President, as the group continued to grow and develop its well-established status as an accrediting and representative body for professional genealogists across the island of Ireland.

Any genealogist with ambitions of becoming an accredited professional would do well to read AGI's announcement and the details it gives of the careers of the two new Fellows.

They clearly demonstrate how the benefits of joining - and actively contributing to - a group of your peers can help an individual extend their knowledge and professionalism, respond to changing technological and marketing developments, find new sources of genealogical work, and extend their own personal recognition as an expert within the field.
