Irish Family History Specialists
Family history research and investigation

Hire us to research
your Irish ancestry

Genealogy.ie are professional genealogists based in Dublin.  We  specialise in Irish family history, and have carried out investigations for customers from Ireland but also for those whose ancestors left a long time ago for the USA, Canada or Australia and are keen to find out about their Irish roots.

Make your first step: get us to do a free assessment

The first step is for us to do an assessment on what you already know and what it is you hope to find. That is why it is important that you give us a clear aim and that you provide us with as much information as possible in the assessment form below. After submitting the form to us, it will take us a few days to complete the assessment and come back to you with a research proposal. Filling in the form does not commit you to anything.

Genealogy.ie research approach

We follow a logical and factual approach to our research:

  1. Fact checking the information you have
  2. Choosing a starting point by establishing what can be accepted as known vs. what is assumed
  3. Selecting the most promising datasets for research
  4. Searching public and paid (we have subscriptions on all relevant ones) databases and archives, including Familysearch, Ancestry, Irishgenealogy, Rootsireland, UK and Irish Newspaper Archives, etc.
  5. If required, checking and/or visiting archives (General Register Office, National Library of Ireland, The National Archives of Ireland, Valuation Office Ireland, Registry of Deeds, PRONI (Northern Ireland), GRONI (Northern Ireland))
  6. Thorough evaluation of all collected data
  7. Analysis of collected information and resolution of any conflicts

The end product is a comprehensive report on our work and what we have uncovered. We are very proud of the fantastic feedback we are getting. Our customers just love them! We set out clearly what the research questions were, what searches we undertook and give detailed descriptions of what we found. Furthermore we give advise on what the next steps could be for your Irish ancestry research. You will also receive digital copies of all documents, records, clippings and photographs we found.

Genealogical Proof Standard

Genealogy.ie uses this standard for all its research. The Genealogical Proof Standard is a guideline for establishing the reliability of genealogical research with reasonable certainty. Genealogists are dealing with often incomplete and contradictory records. The standard will not guarantee findings to be 100% accurate, but will help to get get as close to accurate as we can get to given the information and sources available to us.

As outlined in the Genealogy Standards by the Board for Certification of Genealogists, the Genealogical Proof Standard consists of five elements:

  1. A reasonably exhaustive search for all pertinent information
  2. A complete and accurate citation to the source of each item used
  3. Analysis of the collected information’s quality as evidence
  4. Resolution of any conflicting or contradictory evidence
  5. Arrive at a soundly reasoned, coherently written conclusion

A genealogical conclusion that meets these standards can be considered proved.

Research packages

Genealogy.ie carries out research for those that are just beginning but don’t know where to start but also for those that already have an extensive tree but have hit the famous brick wall. Our research packages start from two hours, but we have better rates available if you want to commission us for one or more full days.
