Georgina has been involved with genealogical research for the past decade. In that time, she has helped hundreds of people find their Irish roots, connecting them with the towns, villages and hillsides where their ancestors lived.
Georgina became affiliated with AGI in 2015, progressing to full membership in 2016. She was elected to the AGI Council in 2017 and held the office of AGI Honorary Secretary 2018-2020.
Prior to working as a genealogist, Georgina had a successful career as a professional field archaeologist, excavating and carrying out research assignments in many parts of Ireland. One of her larger projects brought her to the west coast of Ireland, where she spent almost a decade excavating a small Atlantic island monastery; her book on the results of the excavations was published in 2014, High Island (Ardoileán), Co. Galway Excavation of an Early Medieval Monastery.
As well as family history, Georgina is keenly interested in local history, something which is reflected in her reports. She also provides house histories and being conveniently located close to Dublin city runs a fast, efficient, record retrieval service.
Georgina holds a Diploma in Family History and Genealogy (2011, Distinction), a B.A. in Archaeology and Geography and a Masters in Rural and Urban Planning. Her interests are manifold, crossing cultural, social and geographical boundaries; she welcomes enquiries from all corners of the planet.
