Genealogy

Free Genealogy Advisory Service

As it is currently not possible to avail of the Genealogy consultation service face-to-face the service will instead operate via email.

Assistance will be available during regular office hours:  9.30am-5.00pm [Irish Standard Time], Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays), until further notice.  Emails received outside of those hours will be dealt with on the next day of service.

The service is run on behalf of the National Archives by an external panel of professional genealogists, all holding credentials from Accredited Genealogists Ireland (AGI).  Please note that there is only one genealogist working each day and so the speed of response will depend on the level of demand.

Email correspondence is not as effective as a face-to-face consultation, but in the present circumstances it is a good alternative. To make the most of the service we kindly ask you, if possible, to fill in and return, via email attachment, the following questionnaire .If you cannot fill all of it in, do not worry, it is simply to assist the genealogist as much as possible via correspondence.

Please send your enquiry to the following email: query@nationalarchives.ie
