During the 2020 Covid lockdown, many people took the opportunity to begin researching their family history, but the closure of archives and libraries has not made that easy.
AGRA members and associates are still very much available to undertake commissions and resolve family history challenges, and in the current absence of face to face family history events this is another way in which we can offer advice and information to the public.
