The Discovery Package has been designed to commission 5 hours of meticulous, thorough and comprehensive genealogical research. 

This normally allows a deep search of available resources in Ireland for an ancestor and their family.


Initial Assessment

Irish Genealogist's Report, certificates and Family Tree


If there is only a little information available about an Irish ancestor, an alternative to commissioning a significant tranche of research, is to request an Initial Assessment.

This provides basic research for a lower fixed price.

I also offer a wide range of services designed to help you discover more about your family story and to record your family history.

1. Bespoke research

I can undertake specific research assignments. This could be simply finding a particular document such as a birth record or commissioning a significant assignment to trace a family.

Bespoke commissions are accepted on an hourly basis with a minimum of 2 hours.  This is particularly useful for those who cannot travel to Ireland or have an immediate “road block” which is holding up their research.

To discuss this please get in touch:

2. Family Trees

I research, design, build and print Family Trees. 


These are traditional charts which present family relationships extending back over generations in a conventional tree structure.


They are professionally printed on large sheets of thick, quality paper and can be displayed on a wall or kept as a family heirloom.


Each Family Tree is developed and designed to meet the unique requirements of the customer.

3. Irish citizenship

I offer an comprehensive  support service to guide people through the process of applying for Irish citizenship by descent.


I can provide guidance on the process and on obtaining  the necessary Irish documentation  as well as being available for consultation throughout the process.

4. Britain

I offer help with tracing Irish families who emigrated to Britain in the 19th century.

I am familiar with the archives in Britain and have a good knowledge of the country having lived and worked there for many years.
