Adoption Research


Starting the journey

Perhaps you have been on your own journey for sometime, with limited success. You have found some information but you want more.

Problem is . . . you don’t know where to go from here.

We take on searches when you have hit a “brick wall” and cannot go any further back in time. We will ask you to provide us as much information as possible so we do not cover ground you have already searched.

Our Fees & Product

This is a customized service, designed to give you exactly what you are looking for.

We will agree on a fee after analyzing where we need to search based on what you have already discovered.

Chasing Irish Ancestors: A special area of interest for Old Friends Genealogy

By the end of 2018, we will have made eight trips to Ireland in the past eight years. During these trips we have been able to gather information, knowledge, and history for our clients unable to make the trip on their own.

Services We Provide

  1. Make every effort to determin where your Irish emigrants lived in Ireland and provide maps of their townlands so you can "walk in their footsteps" when you travel to Ireland
  2. If you do not plan to travel to Ireland, then we may be able to visit your ancestor's home townland on your behalf on one of our trips. We make connections in advance, take photos (where your ancestor(s) lived, churches, graveyards, important buildings, etc.), and provide you with a CD with photos and written descriptions for all photos.
  3. Guide individuals through the application process to become an Irish citizen. If you have a grandparent who was born in Ireland, then you qualify! We can help you gather together all certified documents (birth, marriage, and death records) required.

Fees for these special services will vary depending on how much information you already have regarding your Irish ancestors. A fee will be mutually agreed upon before we begin searching.
