Representing the interests of people who are professionally employed in the field of genealogy. 2. Monitoring the standard of their work on behalf of their clients. Anyone wishing to become a member, must be a professional genealogist, living and working on the island of Ireland, research Irish sources and cannot be full-time employed outside the field of genealogy.
