AGI and City Colleges Launch New Stage in their Genealogy Course Collaboration

September 2022 sees the launch of a new stage in the popular collaboration between City Colleges and Accredited Genealogists Ireland to deliver comprehensive courses in family history research for the dedicated amateur and budding professional alike.

Members of Accredited Genealogists Ireland snapped in 2015 on the balcony of the Bedford Tower, Dublin Castle, the former home of the Genealogical Office.

The Certificate in Family History Research takes place online every Thursday evening from 29 September 2022, over ten weeks.  Lectures are given by AGI Members who are recognised experts in their field.

Students are introduced to the building blocks of genealogy:

  • Civil records
  • Church records
  • Census records

Then they are guided through exciting resources, from land surveys to historic newspapers.

Each lecture has time for discussion and questions, and workshops bring it all to life. Minor projects during the course reinforce taught principles and in the final weeks each student has the opportunity to compile their own miniature genealogical report with the professional edge learned during the course.
