Genealogy

Discover your roots.We have a library of books and DVDs on Irish genealogy and Irish families. If you wish we will do some preliminary research on your family history and set up some basic links for you to follow when you arrive. You may use the business centre at reception by appointment. This provides access to broadband connection, printing and faxing facilities.

The Genealogy Advisory Service is available free of charge to all personal callers to the National Library in Kildare Street in Dublin who wish to research their family history in Ireland.

For first time researchers this Service is an ideal starting point, allowing them the opportunity to discuss their research with experienced genealogists and Library staff, and ready access to important finding aids. More experienced family historians are also welcome to avail of the Service if they need assistance with on-going research.

The Genealogy Service hours are as follows:

Monday to Friday: 10.00-16.45 Saturday: 10.00-12.30

The National Library is an 18 th century building centrally located just beside Dail Eireann which houses the worlds largest collection of Irish manuscripts. Many of Irelands literary figures would have spent time there. They host many interesting exhibitions and the staff are wonderfully helpful friendly and encouraging even for the most obscure requests.

The National Library website is www.nli.ie. Dublin is a 1.5 hour journey from Morriscastle.

In Wexford the library in Wexford town has a genealogical section libraryhq@wexfordcoco.ie and Yola Farm just outside Wexford town has an genealogical service which will help with requests for information about families from the South East.
