The content of this website.
     Hopefully the information on this website will provide some knowledge of not only the type of records that are available, in Ireland, but also some idea as to what they may contain. In a number of instances the actual sources are given but in other cases they are not. This is a private business and a website is like a shop window. Whether it is for the purposes of genealogy or history a small sample is given of the type of records that can be searched, for a fee, for a particular purpose.
    In the case of paid research the Client should, in addition to the actual information requested if found, be given the details of the particular sources as well as acknowledging the repository and/or person or persons who supplied the information. Besides this being a requirement for professional genealogists who are members of APG (CLICK HERE) it also helps to make, in one small area of life, for a more civilized society.
