Timeline launches Irish Genealogy Clerk Service
One of Ireland's best-known genealogy consultancies, Timeline Research, has launched an Irish Genealogy Clerk Service.

Timeline's Director, Nicola Morris MAPGI, told Irish Genealogy News that the service aims to help researchers quickly and easily obtain some of the Irish family history records that can be viewed or copied only by visiting repositories in Dublin.

"Although there are many genealogical resources now available online, some vital records are not so readily obtainable for those who cannot make a personal visit," she said.

"Timeline’s Genealogy Clerk Service offers those researchers the opportunity to order a digital image of the source they wish to research.  We have introduced a simple ordering system for digitial images of such vital sources as civil birth, marriage and death registrations, as well as the Valuation Office Revision Books for the Republic of Ireland. None of these is currently available to view online."

Timeline's clerks can also obtain copies of manuscript sources from Dublin's libraries and archives. If, for example, you've found a reference to a manuscript estate rental held in the National Library or a pre-1858 will in the National Archives, the Irish Genealogy Clerk Service will obtain copy documents on your behalf and send them on to you. Or perhaps you want to verify a transcribed parish register entry with a copy of the original entry? Again, Timeline's Genealogy Clerks can obtain a digital image of the manuscript for you.
