The December meeting of the South East Network Group was held at the London offices of Ancestry on Thursday 6 December and hosted by Debra Carter, who is Research Team Manager with Ancestry ProGenealogists. We were a large group of 15 which included Celia Heritage and Joanne Penn who also work for ProGenealogists.
Debra gave us an update of the latest data additions to the Ancestry website and developments in their DNA service. Together with Celia and Joanne, she gave us an insight into what working for ProGenealogists entails.
We also discussed how to deal with difficult clients and the potential safety issues posed by lone working. This is an important point for all our colleagues but especially when they so often work from home and, in this particular group of 15, were almost entirely female.
The next two meetings will be on:
