Paul Milner and the Britain and Ireland Forum


I see in the news that The National Genealogical Society (NGS) has just announced that
Paul Milner is joining the NGS Britain and Ireland Forum as co-leader.
Paul joins Sheila Benedict, CG, in leading the Britain and Ireland
, an NGS members-only Forum established to assist members with
their research in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands
and the Isle of Man. I like Paul. I like the way he teaches. And I like what he teaches. This is a good thing for the Forum.  Here’s a bit more about Paul.

Paul Milner is a native of northern England. He did undergraduate work as a mining engineer in Cornwall, in the extreme southwest of England before coming to the US
to do a Masters Degree in Oceanography. After that Paul changed fields,
obtained a Master of Divinity degree, became a Lutheran minister serving
in local congregations and the national church as a communications
professional .Paul then switched fields again a number of years ago and became a
financial planner.

Paul has been doing genealogical research for over 25 years. He is the co-author with Linda Jonas of A Genealogists Guide to Discovering Your English Ancestors: How to Find
and Record Your Unique Heritage
(2000), and A Genealogists Guide to
Discovering Your Scottish Ancestors: How to Find and Record Your Unique
(2002) both published by Betterway Books. Paul has also
lectured at NGS and FGS conferences since 1996 as well as many state and
local events across North America on many British Isles related topics.

Paul has done extensive research in British Isles records. He is currently on the board of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), and book review editor for the Federation of Genealogical Societies publication FGS Forum and
the newsletter of the British Interest Group of Wisconsin and Illinois
(BIGWILL). Paul is also the past-president of BIGWILL and has served on

family history societies.

  1. Paul spoke at the genealogy conference I attended in June and also spoke at a luncheon. He is a terrific teacher. At the luncheon, he talked about the basics of speaking; astonishingly he modelled those techniques during his conference presentation.

    The Holy Grail of my genealogy research is my Kendrick line, which appears in VA in 1725 with sources that point to a Scottish background. (Wales also has the Kendrick surname.)

    I have been told many times that there is little chance of pushing beyond this point, due to the lack of reliable records. Paul thought a moment and suggested I research the “tobacco lords.” Turns out, many Scots–at this place and time–were connected to the tobacco trade.

    I haven’t located tons of information about the tobacco lords, but it is a new line of inquiry.
