We are professional genealogists based in Dublin. We are THE specialists to research your Irish ancestry for you. We have done a lot of work for clients based in the USA and Canada, as well as for customers from throughout the UK and Ireland. You can read feedback from some of them further down this page.

We have ready access to local sources and can travel to Irish archives in Dublin and Belfast. Thus we are often able to uncover family members and/or facts that you cannot from abroad.

If you already have a family tree but just cannot find that elusive Irish ancestor, we can help filling in that gap.
If you do not know what to do next, or have hit a brick wall, we can help you move forward. We can also verify your research for you, to ensure you have found the right people.
Eleonora, from Chicago, wrote: “… Jillian and Genealogy.ie were able to solve quite a few long standing mysteries about his family. They worked tirelessly until they got answers and presented us with a thorough report on their comprehensive efforts. The service was excellent. Jillian was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them.”
Majella from Ireland, said: “I have always longed to trace my family origins and didn’t know how to go about it. After meeting Jillian by chance, I commissioned her to research my family history. Jillian’s research brought life and excitement to my roots and successfully traced my family as far back as 1823.”
