You may request to see a Sample Report once you have submitted the Assessment From
Irish Genealogy Research Services.
For a fee of ONLY €40 a more comprehensive Assessment can be conducted. This will give a more specific and detailed analysis of whether further research would be successful. It will provide, where possible, some results of the Assessment research and a provisional set of recommendations. Each Assessment process is unique but this Assessment will, on average, will take about 1 hour. More importantly, for some researchers, this Assessment includes a proposed Research Plan so that the research may continue their research based on this advice, if they wish.
Pre-research ASSESSMENT – Completed within 3-5 working days
It is ideal for anyone who may have already some ancestry records and want to expand on their knowledge or has a greater interest in their ancestry and would like a more comprehensive report. It covers those ancestors born primarily in the 20th or 19th centuries and includes research that is specific to the locality of the ancestor.
The report is a comprehensive account of the ancestor and their family chosen to research and in nearly all cases will be able to discover documented evidence of your ancestors back to, at least, the early 1800s. It includes copies of several documents and in particular birth, marriage and deaths, property and tax and census records.
Standard Ancestry Report - Completed within 4-6 weeks
A more advanced report for those that may already have some research done but would like to extend that research as far as possible. Suitable for those requiring a deeper ancestry research with the aim of breaking the ‘1800’ barrier.
The scope of this research is designed to suit each requirement and therefore the fee will vary. It will be agreed on in advance based on a research plan. In addition to the resources used in the Standard Report it may also include, dependent on the agreed research plan; Estate records; Wills; Registry of Deeds; Newspapers, Occupational Records and all Census substitutes including those from the 17th century. The report will include copies of at least 5 retrieved records or documents.
Additional records for any of the above reports may be requested or separately. Records such as Civil, Church, Census and Property can be provided in transcription form or as a copy of the original.
Prices will vary dependent on requirement but as an example where a date of birth is known a copy of a civil record can be retrieved for €12. All other prices available on request.
A specific analysis of your Surname origin and meaning including a Surname dictionary, variants, it’s history and distribution throughout Ireland in the 19th Century and a possible coat of arms associated with the name.
Includes a topographical description from 1837 of the area where your ancestors originated, a history of the Placename meaning, variations and alternatives, historical maps and local photographs where available.
