Genealogy.ie is a regular contributor to genealogical and local history magazines.
For the last few years we have been writing for local history magazine “Obelisk”. The next installment of this annual publication will be launched in November, the third year running with an article by us.
In addition we also have recently been published in North-American magazine “Your Genealogy Today”, with an article about Irish schools in the nineteenth century. And although we cannot yet reveal what the article is about, we will be in the next edition of this magazine as well!
At this very moment we are being published in “Internet Genealogy“, also aimed at the North American market. This article is about a very ‘niche’ database: ‘Legacies of British Slave-ownership’. The stories in it are fascinating though. The magazine is hitting the shelves just about now! Clicking on the picture below will bring you to their website.
At Genealogy.ie we love researching the family tree of our clients. One way of presenting the results is through art and we love the work of Irish artist Maggie Lyng of Stoneacre Studios. Maggie is running her cottage business in Trim, County Meath and you can find out more about her work at www.stoneacrestudios.com. She can be commissioned to paint bespoke personalised watercolour keepsakes for all occasions. Here is a wonderful example of a family tree she painted.
If you would like your family tree painted you can contact Maggie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For one happy customer we found her parents and grandparents – who she had never known – at the age of 77! We are telling about it in the video below.
Fiona, her daughter, told us: “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.”
