Initial Survey - NO CHARGE[Top]

On receiving your ancestor's details I will assess the information to determine what research strategy is most appropriate and what research package is the most suited to the sources available. This service is provided free of charge and the results should be available with 10-14 days

5 Hour Package[Top]

This package is designed to explore the basic more accessible sources before progressing to explore more obscure records. The primary sources to be exhausted would be the 1901 and 1911 Census and various nineteenth century Census records where appropriate; the civil birth, death and marriages records that include references to most people born after 1850 and the two main valuation surveys carried out in the 1820s/30s and the 1850/60s.

10 Hour Package[Top]

This package is designed to explore the more difficult sources that might be relevant to your ancestors. The main types of records would include church records, estate records, graveyard records, shipping lists, wills & administrations, newspaper records, etc.

General Search[Top]

This search is designed for those who wish to have further research done into the origin/history of their name or the locality that their ancestors were associated with. Research is generally undertaken in 2 hour blocks at IR£30.00 per hour.
