AppGen teachers

Applied Genealogy co-founders Mary Kircher Roddy, Lisa Gorrell, and Jill Morelli


Three certified genealogists–Mary Kircher Roddy, Lisa Hork Gorrell and Jill Morelli –have joined forces to create a new online genealogy institute. The Applied Genealogy Institute (AppGen) is a practicum-based learning course in the tradition of the ProGen study groups, but smaller and more focused. It is the result of many discussions with emerging genealogical leaders regarding the type of education that is possible for busy but committed genealogists.

The institute launches this fall, with three courses to be offered in October/November of 2021:

  1. “Irish Research” – instructor Mary Roddy, CG
  2. “Land Research” – instructor Lisa Gorrell, CG
  3. “Exploring Broad Context” – instructor Jill Morelli, CG

Do you best “Learn by Doing”? Do you want smaller classes that allow for significant class discussion and to receive responses to your assignments–all at an affordable price? Then the Applied Genealogy Institute is for you! Visit the website at and sign up for the mailing list to get in the opening window for registration.
