There are many Irish cemeteries. Some are tiny and contain only a few graves, others – like famous Glasnevin – are huge. Some Irish cemeteries are very logically laid out, and have clear records. For others it will be necessary to walk the entire ground. And just when you think you are done, you discover yet more graves in another corner.
We can visit Irish cemeteries in Ireland on your behalf and provide a written report. The report will focus on the cemetery itself, any grave records if available and of course photographs. We can present the findings to you in an attractive slideshow or PowerPoint presentation.
Whilst graves and Irish cemeteries are of particular interest for Irish family history researchers, we believe however there are a lot more ancestral sites that you might want us to look at.
We can visit locations in Ireland where your ancestors have lived and provide an impression and photographs of the village as it is now. If you are lucky and it still exists, we might even be able to find the house they occupied, or a shop they owned. Can you imagine the framed picture on you wall of the hotel that your grandparents exploited? Of the farmhouse they lived in?
If you have relatives still living in Ireland, or if there are people still alive who knew your ancestors and who are willing to talk, we can use our skills to interview them and document their memories for you.
You might already know where the house where your ancestors lived is. Or in what graves on what Irish cemeteries they are buried. But if you don’t, we are happy to offer our Irish family history research services to find out.
We believe a family tree should be more than a list of names and dates. Why not enrich it with photographs of places that were important to them, either in their life or death.
