Ancestor Network Moves To Establish Branch in Northern Ireland

By | General Genealogy News | No Comments

Belfast and Dublin, 17 October 2017

Because of growing demand from people of the Irish Diaspora with Ulster roots, as well as demand from solicitor firms and heir hunting firms for specialist genealogical researchers in the six counties, Ancestor Network Ltd (www.ancestornetwork.ie) has announced today the establishment of its Northern Ireland branch and the opening of its new Belfast office (www.ancestornetwork.co.uk). The branch is headed by Michael Rooney, a native of Northern Ireland, who is the Permanent Representative and Lead Genealogist for Ancestor Network in Belfast. The registered address of the Northern Ireland branch is 138 University Street, Belfast, BT71HJ, Northern Ireland.

Ancestor Network is the first Irish genealogy research, advisory and publishing company to establish offices in both the Republic of Ireland and in Northern Ireland. Read More

Ann Gregg, a genealogy consultant, helps Patricia Smith-McCarthy track down a cousin at the Genealogy Advisory Service at the National Library of Ireland, Dublin. Gregg helped Smith-McCarthy, who grew up on Long Island, New York and now lives with her husband in South Carolina, secure a copy of her grandfather’s brother’s marriage license, phone numbers, and email addresses of living contemporaries in County Cork. Previously, her siblings were only able to glean anecdotal evidence after asking around at a pub near the farm, she says. “It is very rewarding,” says Gregg about her work. Sometimes Americans, who make up three-quarters of all those seeking their roots at the Genealogy Advisory Service, come fresh off a tour bus after being told of the office. “They start making phone calls home to get whatever information they know is there,” says Gregg, who’s organization, www.ancestornetwork.ie, contracts with the library.
