The Society of Genealogists Northern Ireland (SGNI) comprises commercial genealogists based in the six counties of Northern Ireland (Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry (Derry), Tyrone) who adhere to our Code of Practice.
 
 

Mission Statement

We encourage Members to:

provide a high quality of genealogical research
  discuss issues relating to genealogy and share skills and expertise acquired throughout their years of research
  work to attract genealogical visitors to Northern Ireland and make their time here more fulfilling as a result of research into their family history
  negotiate with record repositories and libraries in Northern Ireland to improve access to and availability of archives and facilities for users
  promote family history research in Northern Ireland at all levels
   

Commissioning Work

Our Members, listed below, are independent commercial researchers with many years of professional experience and differing areas of specialist knowledge. You should contact them directly for an assessment of, or advice on, any work you may wish to commission and a quotation of the costs involved.

Joining SGNI

Genealogists working professionally for a period of time may apply for Membership. Applications should be made, in writing, to the Secretary. Details from secretary@sgni.net

Members must agree to adhere to SGNI's Code of Practice.

The Society encourages Members and Clients to sort out between themselves any problems or disagreements which might occur. A Mediation Service is available as a last resort to Members and Clients where both parties have agreed, in writing, to this.

Associate Membership may, at the discretion of the Officers, be offered to genealogists who have made significant research contributions, but do not accept commercial assignments.

All Members and Associate Members receive a copy of SGNI's Rules and Constitution.
