Free in-person genealogy consultations back at National Archives

Great news! The National Archives of Ireland (NAI) has announced that its free in-person Genealogy Advisory Service is back up and running again after the covid pandemic.

This happy development means that researchers can now turn up on Mondays to Fridays between 10am–1pm and 2pm–5pm for a consultation at the Bishop Street archive*. The service is primarily intended to help researchers at the start of their family history journey, but assistance is also available to those with more advanced queries.

Whatever the query, all visitors need a Reader's Ticket.

The service is run by an external panel of professional genealogists, all holding credentials from Accredited Genealogists Ireland. It is run on a first-come, first-served basis (no appointments), so be prepared to wait.

*The building closes each day between 1pm and 2pm.
