AGI is pleased to welcome Jillian van Turnhout as the newest Affiliate of Accredited Genealogists Ireland. Jillian has a national profile outside the sphere of ancestral research, having been a member of Seanad Éireann, the upper house of the Irish parliament.
As well as being a former Senator, she is a current member of the Board of the Arts Council of Ireland. Jillian has been involved in family history for nearly two decades and in recent years she has concentrated on developing that interest professionally.
Jillian is the 17th person to be admitted as an AGI Affiliate since the Affiliate Programme was first introduced in 2012. Nine of her predecessors have already successfully progressed to gaining credentials as Members of Accredited Genealogists Ireland. We wish Jillian every success in her association with AGI.
