Genealogical Research at the
Irish Cultural Centre of New England Library
The Irish Cultural Centre of New
England and the Friends of Irish Research conduct
genealogical consults on the third
Friday of every
month. All of our consults are by appointment
only. We specialize in helping those who are
just starting out, or those that are ready to begin
researching Irish records, including traveling to
Ireland to do their research. We also specialize in
helping individuals that are stuck, or have hit the
brick wall in their research. This service is free
but donations are always welcomed.
What we do not do:
We do not do an individual's research for them. We
help, guide, teach and give you the tools that
you'll need to be a successful family researcher.
We do not do
genealogical validation projects. We stress
validating and recording your source information. We
will show you how to do this as you proceed along
with your research.
