Georgina has been a Member of AGI since 2016, having been an Affiliate from 2015.  Prior to working as a genealogist, she had a successful career as a professional field archaeologist, excavating and carrying out research assignments throughout Ireland.  One of her larger projects brought her to the west coast, where she spent almost a decade excavating a small Atlantic island monastery.  This resulted in the publication in 2014 of her book, High Island (Ardoileán), Co. Galway Excavation of an Early Medieval Monastery.  She has a keen interest in local history and house history, as well as genealogy.  She holds a B.A. in Archaeology and Geography and a Masters in Rural and Urban Planning, as well as a Diploma in Family History / Genealogy.
