Ancestry Tours

Why not let us research your family tree using all records at our disposal including: birth, death, marriage records, church records, directories, land estate records, wills, surveys and valuation records and many more.

If and when you decide to visit, we will arrange visits to the sites that are relevant in your own personal ancestor trail. This may include homes, schools, churches, graveyards etc.

Or why not join others on our Research and Tour week detailed below.

All you have to do is advise us of any information you know already. The more you tell us the more likely of success. Information such as: names, addresses, religion, occupation and dates are very useful. If appropriate we will research for any living relatives you may have here and arrange a meeting.

In return we will advise you of the cost to research the next stage. No research is carried out without payment first and no payment will be asked unless you agree with the research we intend to carry out.

E-mail us today to begin the growth of your family tree in Ulster.
