FreeUKGEN Trustee News

A warm welcome to our new trustees!

We are delighted to introduce the newest members of our Board of Trustees.

Giorgio Abraini has been with us for almost a year, and has given Free UK Genealogy the great benefit of his background in finance and economics.

More recently, we have appointed Andrew Turvey, Alexandra Eveleigh, and Linda Baines to the board.

Andrew has a background in accounting and risk management and has been a keen family historian for over 30 years. He is passionate about Open Data, being a founding trustee of Wikimedia UK, the charity that promotes and supports the Wikipedia family of websites within the UK. 

Alexandra is a professional archivist by background and currently Collections Information Manager at Wellcome Collection in London, UK where her role complements her research interests in public participation in library, archive and museum contexts.

Linda is an independent researcher, who previously worked as a senior manager for a public sector science and technology organisation.

We are pleased to be able to further develop the range of skills and experience for the successful management and sustainability of the organisation.
