Our Ireland genealogists research on location. They will find and analyze the best records available to further your family history research. Because our researchers reside in Ireland, they can do searches that cannot be done anywhere else. For example, we can search post 1959 indexes to births, marriage and deaths right up to 2013. This search can not be done outside of Ireland.
