Family History Research Voucher – Various Prices

Ideal for someone who wants to learn more about their family history but isn’t able to undertake the research themselves OR someone who needs an expert to continue researching earlier generations of their family. We will do the research for you.

Get the experts to do the research for you. Redeem this voucher for research of your Irish family history.

The research will be agreed with the client in advance and the results will be presented in a detailed report with copies of all relevant documents found during the course of the search.

Every family is unique, as is their history. Each family history research project that we undertake presents different challenges and results, which can make it difficult to determine how much time will be required for each project. However, we have developed a guideline to illustrate what you will get for each value of the vouchers available.

Researching a single line of one of your ancestors would require a voucher for €300. This means that we can research your grandfather’s paternal line back to the early 19th century for €300, identifying his father, grandfather, great grandfather and possibly even his great great grandfather.

Research of the paternal and maternal lines of your grandmother would require a voucher for €600.

If you would like us to research the paternal and maternal lines of both grandparents, the cost would be €1200.

We discuss with the voucher holder exactly how they would like to use the voucher and tailor our research to meet their objectives. We love what we do and we never leave a stone unturned in our research which means that our clients often get a lot more than we initially promise. However, we cannot always anticipate the problems that we might encounter during our research, so we cannot guarantee that we will always be successful. If we find it impossible to proceed with part of the research we will consult the voucher holder to see if they would like to use the research time on other branches of their family tree.

Our completed research is presented in a detailed report, illustrating our findings as well as copies of documents such as birth certificates, marriage registrations and land records. This will become a document that can be handed down for generations.

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