Research packages

Fixed fee Commissions

The Discovery Package is the standard fixed fee research package which offers 4 hours of comprehensive, meticulous and extensive research.  Typically the starting point is ancestor born in the 20th century e.g. a grandparent.  In most cases this allows a single family line to be traced back through 2  generations.

The Explorer Package offers 8 hours of comprehensive, meticulous and extensive research at a fixed fee.  The starting point is typically a set of grandparents which in most cases allows two family lines to be traced back through 2 generations.

All relevant sources will be consulted and findings will be documented and carefully presented with all sources annotated.

Copies of records which corroborate findings are included in a full and comprehensive Report produced at the end of the project.

Initial Assessment

When there is little information available about an Irish ancestor, an Initial Assessment provides basic research for a fixed price.

The aim is to try to find the ancestor and family and then to assess whether there is a solid verifiable foundation for more detailed genealogical work.

The Initial Assessment is offered at a fixed price of €175.  This includes all expenses including documents.  There are no extras.

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

Research services

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:

Free Consultation

If you are not sure what help you need, what options are available to you or what information to collect to get going, please take advantage of my Free Consultation.

I will  review your research aims and where you are in your family history project.

This will enable me to work out with you what the next steps might be and what services I can offer to help.

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.

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.


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.
