Many, many thanks for the exceptional work you did tracking down my Irish ancestors. It was the best money I ever spent; your service was worth every penny and more.

I’ve enjoyed — and continue to enjoy — poring over the details contained in your amazing 10-page report and 18 supporting documents. They have spurred me to keep digging.

After a considerable amount of very frustrating and disappointing time trying to find my Irish ancestors, I contacted Genealogy.ie. Their performance exceeded all my expectations, in both quality and time. Jillian came up with a wealth of information. I will not hesitate to recommend Genealogy.ie to my friends.

I commissioned Jillian to find a photo of “J.F. Hudson”, former Captain of the Royal Dublin Golf Club. We had a blank space in the Club Photo gallery of Past Captains for him. As John Fenton Hudson never married and had no direct descendants Jillian first had to trace back to his parents to find his siblings and then trace forwards and found his Grandnieces. She impressed with her skills and commitment leaving no stone unturned to succeed in this challenge. His Photo is now included after many years!

My husband wanted to explore his Irish roots in hopes of obtaining dual citizenship.  Living just outside Chicago, it was difficult for us to do the research ourselves. While we learned he did not qualify, 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.

Mum is pouring over all the details…. I can see many conversations in the future, wonderful to find out your grandparents names at the age of 77! Thank you.

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.
