My Great Aunt called snowdrops ‘fair maidens of February’.
If you love snowdrops and are in Ireland in February you should visit Altamont Gardens?, Carlow. The tour by the gardener is highly recommended.
“Every visitor says it has a special atmosphere, that’s why so many people come back. Every element you want from a great garden is here, from lovely lawns, floral beds and beautiful woodland going down to the river, to a walled garden and really superb collections, such as the snowdrops, rhododendrons and the fabulous oaks in the arboretum” Paul Cutler, head gardener at Altamont Gardens.
If you can’t make it this year, check out this short video we made of our visit. The video is an example of a presentation we at www.genealogy.ie can make of sites of historical importance to your ancestors.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM OUR IRISH GENEALOGY RESEARCH SERVICE
Before we start we will always verify with you what it is you want to find. We will also always agree a cost with you. And we present all our findings in a clear and factual report. This reports shows you your question, for what and where we searched (to avoid any future duplication), a conclusion and advice on further research. And of course we will give you digital copies of any certificates, wills, relevant book pages, etc. we have found.
We also offer to travel to places where you ancestors lived or are buried. You will receive a detailed description, complete with photo’s.
We can also enrich your family tree with local history research. This can be the history of an area where your ancestors lived, a village, or even the history of a house of farm, if available.
And we can help you put your data in a great looking presentation. This can be a slide show, video or booklet. Great for that next family gathering or as a personal gift. Click on the image below to have a look at our services.
