Family Research

The Process and Fees

 

We can help in tracing your ancestry with research at any scale. We generally work in stages at a time, giving you the opportunity to review each stage as the work proceeds and to select aspects of most interest for further study. That approach also gives you control over the budget of the project.

Each stage is fully planned and costed in advance. Fees start from a range of EURO 60 - EURO 150 for a single-source search, though one stage of research can involve multiple sources.

Scope for Research


There are a wealth of sources for Irish genealogical research, many of which could apply in your own case depending on the individual circumstances of your ancestors. These sources, when used together, can build a vivid picture of the family history.

The scope for research will depend on a number of factors including:

How far back in time the start point isYour Irish ancestor may for example have left the country at a relatively early date, which could pose challenges to the research. Generally the further back in time we go the smaller the pool of sources is likely to become. For example the civil registration system for births, deaths and Roman Catholic marriages was only introduced to Ireland in 1864 though Church records can in many cases provide a substitute source of information on vital events in much earlier periods.


Where the family resided – sources can differ greatly even at a local level. Church registers for example, - which are a very important source for vital events prior to the introduction of the civil registration system -were kept on a parish-by-parish basis with wide variation in start dates.


The circumstances of the family – unsurprisingly the record trail tends to go further in the case of wealthy families with significant property holding. Tenant farming families, tradespeople etc. can often appear in quite early sources also, such as for example records of estate management. Non-landholding families who worked as agricultural labourers are less likely to appear in such sources, the hope being in their case that a local parish register will survive for an early period.

The aim is to piece together and analyse the evidence from the different sources to try to arrive at strong conclusions on the true course of the history of the family.
