Accredited genealogists

The Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives (AGRA) and its Scottish and Irish equivalents, the Association of Scottish Genealogists and Researchers in Archives (ASGRA) and Accredited Genealogists Ireland (AGI), are the three professional associations that provide genealogical accreditation in the UK and Ireland.

Anglia Research has more accredited members of these organisations than any other firm in the UK. We have seven full members of AGRA, ASGRA and AGI on our team. Our in-house training and collaborative methods ensure that their expertise is passed on to every other team member.

There are numerous other organisations that researchers can join, such as the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) and the Society of Genealogists (SoG), but no expertise is required for membership.

You can find out more about AGRA accreditation and what is means here.

Our AGRA, ASGRA and AGI members are:

Peter Turvey

Our investment in accredited staff is your assurance that an estate can be distributed safely.
