Did your ancestors emigrate?

Tracing Irish emigrants

I aim to help those whose ancestors left Ireland   

Many Irish families like mine emigrated from Ireland in the 19th century.  As a result I have great empathy with those whose families came from Ireland.

My particular interest is to help those whose ancestors left Ireland for a better life in America, Great Britain and elsewhere.   

You may have thought about looking into your Irish ancestry but find that you are faced with the daunting and challenging task of tracing family histories in two countries.

I aim to provide a comprehensive service that traces emigrant families in Ireland and allows people to develop a coherent family history. 

Family history research in Britain

I lived and worked in Britain for many years and I am familiar with its archives and genealogical resources.  I can undertake research into your family who emigrated to Scotland, Wales or England and include the results with your Irish family history.

This research can often trace ancestors back to the 1830s and provide details of births, marriages, deaths, occupations and resident addresses where available.

Important Note

Please be aware that in some cases families may prove impossible to trace.  

In these cases I will only charge for agreed work that has been carried out.
