REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIALS FOR ROOTS REVEALED

 

'Natalie was very helpful in taking the information I provided and adding valuable material from PRONI and other sources. I also asked her to take pictures of a family burial ground near Donegore, which also provided some close to family relationships. Services were provided promptly and at a reasonable cost compared to alternative researchers. I was very pleased with the research report and the pictures provided.'

GENEALOGY AND FAMILY HISTORY RESEARCH SERVICES

If you are interested in finding out more about your Irish, Northern Irish, Scots-Irish (or Ulster-Scots as they're called here) ancestors, and would like to commission some Family History Research I’d be delighted to help you find out about them and their lives.  Let me help you to Reveal those Roots! 

A Bespoke Genealogy Consultation and Research Plan will enable you to make the best use of your time if you would like to do your family research yourself and need guidance on where you can access Irish records and the type of records you can find.

If you live in, or your business is based in an old property, you may be interested in a House History that you can share with family, friends and guests.

Document Retrieval - if you know of a particular document that you want from one of our local archives, repositories or libraries, I can retrieve it for you.

If you’re interested in obtaining Irish citizenship for the purposes of applying for an Irish passport, I can help you to find the required documentation.

Historical research can be undertaken for heritage events, exhibitions, museums, etc.
