NAI suspends genealogy service

The National Archives of Ireland (www.nationalarchives.ie) is suspending its genealogy service as of tomorrow, Friday, 1st June. The service has been provided for free by the Association of Professional Genealogists of Ireland for many years, and the news appears to be a sudden development. 

At the time of writing the website for the archive appears to be offline, but the direct link to its announcement is apparently at www.nationalarchives.ie/2012/05/genealogy-service/. There is no announcement on the development on the APGI website (www.apgi.ie/news.html) as yet. Claire Santry has the full story - as much as is at present known - on her Irish Genealogy News blog at http://irish-genealogy-news.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/national-archives-genealogy-service.html.

Not good news...
