The National Archives of Ireland has issued a Request for Tenders (RFT) for the provision of its Genealogy Service, which is available free to visitors without appointment in a room adjoining the Reading Room in Bishop Street, Dublin.
As the RFT explains, 'the Genealogy Service is provided free of charge to all visitors to the National Archives who wish to obtain professional genealogical advice. It is intended primarily for first-time visitors, and enables them to discuss their research with experienced and professionally accredited genealogists, and to have assistance from the latter in consulting some of the most important finding aids. More experienced family historians may also avail of the service in order to obtain expert advice on problems arising in the course of their research.'
The contract will be awarded for a period of one year. The existing contract, fulfilled by a consortium of members of the Association of Professional Genealogists in Ireland, expires at the end of January.
