Irish Family History Specialists
Family history research and investigation

Professional Research
into your Irish Roots

 

Jillian van Turnhout is an AGI Affiliate.


 
We specialise in Irish family history research for those whose ancestors left a long time ago for the USA, Canada, Australia or the UK and are keen to find out about their Irish roots. We have however also carried out many investigations for customers in Ireland.
Genealogy.ie works with family historians who are just beginning but don’t know where to start but also with those that already have an extensive tree but have hit the famous brick wall.

 
We follow a logical and factual approach to our research, going through the following steps:

  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

“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.”

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 as close to accurate as we can get to give 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.
