Private Consultation with Expert Genealogist – €195

Sit down with expert genealogist Nicola Morris to discuss your Irish family history and receive a detailed step by step guide tailored to meet your specific research needs. A long standing contributor to Who Do You Think You Are? Nicola can help you to discover how to find your ancestors in Ireland.

This voucher entitles the holder to a 1 hour consultation with professional genealogist and Irish researcher for Who Do You Think You Are? Nicola Morris.

All meetings take place in Dublin City.

This voucher is ideal for a family member or friend who wants to research their Irish ancestors but is not sure how or where to start. The voucher can also be used for someone who has already started their Irish family tree, but has hit the proverbial ‘brick wall’ but still wants to continue the research themselves.

Nicola will help you to identify the next steps in your research, where to find the relevant records, pitfalls you might encounter and the likelihood of success when pursuing certain sources. Following the consultation you will also receive a written step by step guide tailored to your own family history research.

The interactive guide will identify sources that should be consulted and will include the following:

Description of the source, highlighting its relevance in genealogical research, its origins and historical context.

How you can access the recommended records, many of which are freely available online.

What you can expect to find when you consult the sources, highlighting the difficulties or common errors that many researchers face when consulting such records.

Please Note we are an Irish based genealogy company and our research and recommendations pertain only to Irish family history.
