2015 was a busy year for AGI – Accredited Genealogists Ireland (formerly APGI – the Association of Professional Genealogists in Ireland), including a change of name.
AGI welcomed five new Members in 2015 – Anne Rodda, Joanna Cicely Fennell, Elaine Hannon, Sandra Doble and Beverly Brown. Both Elaine and Sandra graduated to full membership from Affiliate status. AGI also welcomed three new Affiliates – Jane Halloran Ryan, Marie Cahill and Kit Smyrl.
Subsequent to a presentation at the last AGM in relation to a proposed change of name for APGI, and after much lively discussion by members on our website, six names were put to an Extraordinary General Meeting held on 27 May 2015. After a further discussion and ballot, Accredited Genealogists Ireland became our new name.
