ProGenealogists' Irish research team seeks Associate Genealogist

Ancestry ProGenealogists is looking to add a new Associate Genealogist to its Irish research team. This team has members based in both Ireland and the US, so there are two slightly different postings on the Ancestry careers pages but just one vacancy.

"Our job postings change over time to reflect the skillsets we are looking for to cater for the work we have," Irish Research Team Manager Joe Buggy told IrishGenealogyNews. "Over the last couple of years, we have typically looked for in-depth Irish expertise and proficiencies in US and/or Canadian research."

Joe has been based at Ancestry's Dublin office at Sir John Rogerson Quay, overlooking Samuel Beckett Bridge and the Diving Bell, since Ancestry ProGenealogists first expanded outside the US in 2015 (it now has 18 genealogists in Ireland, the UK and Germany). He says working for ProGenealogists provides experienced genealogists the opportunity to conduct research on a wide variety of projects, learn from some of the best experts in the industry, and discover previously unknown information and stories for its clients. "Demand for ProGenealogists' services continues to grow," he adds.

The Dublin post focuses on advanced Irish records and research and calls for proficiency in US and Canadian research, while the Salt Lake City posting demands an advanced knowledge of U.S. immigration research and methodological approaches, expertise on Irish immigration to North America, and proficiency in research in records from Ireland.

All applicants who fit the bill will need two to five years experience as a professional genealogist.
