Are You Stuck?


Starting the journey

We understand the excitement when starting the search for family history and long-lost relatives. At first, the information comes pouring in from multiple, easy-to-use sources but what happens when you just can’t find any more?

You would love to dig deeper but every door you open just leads to another brick wall. That’s where we come in.

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. You tell us how you would like us to help you get the break-through you are looking for to find more about your family history.

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.
