Who we are

The Register of Qualified Genealogists is run by members working on an entirely voluntary basis. This page recognises those who freely contribute their time and energy to further the aims of the organisation.

Board of Directors

The directors are responsible for running RQG and managing its affairs, ensuring good corporate governance and compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. Board meetings are held monthly, though the directors interact with each other almost on a daily basis. They are elected by, and accountable to, members at our Annual General Meetings.
