About me...


A full member of AGI (Accredited Genealogists Ireland)


For almost 10 years I have been a full member of AGI (Accredited Genealogists Ireland), which is the accrediting body for Irish Genealogy and the leading professional organisation for family history and related professionals in Ireland. 

I currently serve on the AGI National Council.

My business background and project management expertise has given me a set of skills that are particularly useful in modern genealogical research.  I have a very logical and methodical approach to gathering and analysing information, strong problem-solving skills, good attention to detail and the ability to think laterally. 



I have been working in Irish genealogy for nearly 20 years.  During this time I have helped many people across the world to trace their Irish ancestors.

In addition, I have worked with the descendants of numerous emigrant families to research their families in the USA, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere as well as tracing their ancestors in Ireland.  This has allowed me to provide a seamless and integrated family history.



My family history

During my life I developed a keen interest in genealogy and spent a lot of time unravelling my own Irish and English family history across Co. Armagh and Co. Clare in Ireland and Lancashire in England.

Since retiring from a career in IT, I have been able to devote more time to my passion for genealogy and to offer a range of genealogy services professionally.

My aims

My principal aim is to offer a reliable and friendly service that helps people discover their Irish roots.

I aim to help those:

  • who want help with their Irish family history research

  • whose ancestors emigrated to the USA or Britain or elsewhere and would like to discover more about their Irish family history

  • who want a competent and reliable person to undertake research work for them in Ireland

  • who are keen to learn more about their Irish ancestors but do not have the time to do the research themselves

  • who want to come to Ireland to see where their ancestors came from

Genealogy services

I am particularly interested in helping Irish families who emigrated and started a new life in the USA, Britain and elsewhere. 

I will always endeavour to deliver exceptional service which represents value for money in a friendly and professional manner.

Code of practice

I fully subscribe to the AGI Code of Practice.
