AGI to deliver the Certificate in Family History Research for City Colleges

Accredited Genealogists Ireland (AGI), the accrediting and representative body for professional genealogists across the island of Ireland, will (once again) be delivering the Certificate in Family History Research course in collaboration with City Colleges, Dublin this autumn.

The ten-week course will be presented (live) online by AGI members, all of them recognised experts in their field, on Thursday evenings from 29 September.

Students will be introduced to the building blocks of genealogy: Civil, Church and Census records, and then guided through land surveys, historical newspapers and other important groups of resources.

Each evening session will include time for questions and discussion, and regular practical workshops and minor projects will help to reinforce the research principles students have been taught. In the final weeks each student has the opportunity to compile their own miniature genealogical report with the professional edge they learned during the course.
