On Thursday, 1st October AGI Members and Affiliates attended a CPD event via Zoom. It was our first such event and we were pleased to be joined by Scottish colleagues, members of ASGRA – Association of Scottish Genealogists and Researchers in Archives.
Over the course of an hour, AGI founder member John Grenham spoke about running an Irish genealogy website. He touched on the history of the early, formative years of genealogy on the internet, and the stumbling blocks and hurdles he had faced since in arriving at his current website, www.johngrenham.com, and the current edition of the book no self-respecting Irish genealogist should be without, Tracing Your Irish Ancestors (now in its fifth edition).
We were particularly pleased to welcome to the event AGI’s newest Affiliate, Jillian Van Turnhout.
