The Seanchaí Kerry Writer’s Museum has been the central orientation point for Tourism, Culture and Heritage in the greater Listowel region of North County Kerry since opening its doors in 2001. From this vantage point, we have developed a strong network with local historians, heritage experts, writers and researchers. It is their unique and encyclopaedic knowledge of the local people and their stories, combined with access to local records and resources, that has enabled the development of our Genealogy Research Services.
Despite having had many success stories to date, not everyone has Irish ancestors that are easily traced. Irish genealogy research can be very challenging at times, and most Family Trees will have the “Brick Wall Ancestor” that brings research to a halt. We like to ensure that we will be able to find records regarding your ancestor/s, before we pursue any further detailed research. In line with this, we recommend the following course of action:
- Complete and submit the Ancestry Profile Form
- Initial Search Assessment: €10
- Family History Report: €20 per hour
