Family research starts with records. We can provide you with Irish birth, marriage and death certificates. We can get images of valuation books or copies of surviving Irish wills. There are both digital and certified copies available of the Irish birth, marriage and death certificates records. The former are great for your own records. But for any legal purpose you will need the more expensive certified ones.
If you know what you need and have all information we can simply obtain the Irish birth, marriage and death certificates for you. (We have a handy checklist for you that we can email on request).
In most cases however our Irish genealogical records lookup service goes hand in hand with our Irish family history research. That way we can make sure that you have identified the right person(s) before we order any Irish birth, marriage and death certificates. It will surprise you how many family trees have people in them who on closer inspection turn our to be not related at all!
We have subscriptions on many archives and databases that we can search on your behalf. We are also regular visitors to the many libraries and archives available in Dublin, such as the National Archives of Ireland. In addition, we can visit PRONI, the Northern Irish archives. Finally, we can travel to one of the many county-based genealogy centres which hold indexes of parish registers for the whole of their county.
Thanks to our ready access to these local sources we are often able to uncover family members that you cannot.
We can also travel throughout Ireland to transcribe and take images of any surviving records.

Some records are made freely avaiable by the Irish state. Records that are available are: birth registrations (1864-1916); marriage registrations (1882-1940); and death registrations (1891-1965). You can access these at www.irishgenealogy.ie
