Genealogy @ the Ashling

Genealogy Hotel Breaks Dublin

We have introduced Genealogy @ the Ashling and our objective is to provide you with a ”first step” introduction to genealogy, to give you some information and contact points which may be of help to you in tracing your roots on your visit to Ireland. We know that Genealogy @ the Ashling cannot provide you with all of the answers and nor are we directly qualified to assist you on your journey of exploration. However we do hope that the centre will give you some direction, a flavour of an older Ireland and a taste for exploring your past. We hope it is of interest to you and adds to the quality of the time that you spend with us here at the Hotel. Great value Genealogy Hotel Breaks Dublin.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Ashling and to Ireland and hope you have an enjoyable stay. May you return home with many happy memories from the land of your ancestors.

Tracing your Irish Ancestors

Interest in Irish genealogy has been at a high level for some years and continues to grow. Approximately 75 million people worldwide have ancestors who originated in Ireland. Recently there has been a significant increase in the number of Irish descendants looking to trace their Irish Ancestry.

Even with the advent of the Internet, researching Irish Genealogy proves difficult. A lot of the Irish census data of the 19th century, which would be very useful have been lost or destroyed , particularly as a result of the destruction of the Public Record Office of Ireland in 1922, yet it should be pointed out that a significant volume of records survives. In addition, there is no dedicated Genealogy Ireland records centre resulting in the data being very fragmented.

Many people who wish to research their ancestors are not genealogists. Many people of Irish descent worldwide or even those still living in Ireland may never have looked into tracing their Irish Family tree but are now very keen to find out more about their ancestors who left Ireland many years ago or who may have lived there all their lives. Barack Obama, the current President of the United States is a prime example of one such person.

Considering the difficulties in carrying out research, a way needs to be found to simplify the process of tracing your ancestors. There are websites on the internet that provide information on Irish ancestry, some of them with good information for tracing your ancestors. There are still many records that are not accessible or easily accessible on the Internet and need more effort to access and trace.

Conducting your own Research

If you enjoy doing your own family research, and the chase is as important as getting results, you will get the most out of your stay in Ireland if you plan well.

As many Irish genealogical sources are available in national repositories in Dublin and Belfast, this can be a useful starting point. If you know the county or counties of origin where you need to carry out research, you can also make contact with the relevant local repositories. In Dublin the National Library of Ireland, the National Archives and the General Register Office are all centrally located.

The National Library has a dedicated genealogy room where researchers can access online resources and get advice from the trained staff there. The Library also holds many original and unique sources.

The National Archives of Ireland similarly has many sources and provides a free genealogy advisory service to members of the public which is operated by the Association of Professional Genealogists in Ireland (APGI).

You can start your research before your visit to Ireland, by accessing the growing amount of Irish Genealogical material available online.

Before you Travel

It is important for you to study the history of your family. In order to be in a position to attempt worthwhile research when in Ireland and planning a visit to the ancestral area, you must work through the records in your own country to identify your emigrant ancestor. Then you must gather as much basic information as possible on your ancestor, such as:

• Name of ancestor
• Approximate date of birth
• Parish or county of origin in Ireland
• Religious Denomination
• Names of ancestor’s parents
• Name of ancestor’s spouse,
• Date and place of marriage
