How to contact
Irish Genealogy Toolkit

Please read this message before completing the form below.

As of 27 August 2014, I have reluctantly accepted that I can no longer respond to research queries. With the best will in the world I just can't spend so many hours a week struggling to get on top of an ever-growing backlog of these queries, especially since so many of them are already answered on this website, if people would only read the 200-odd pages of free advice provided.


Don't send your genealogy, Irish history or surname queries to me

... they will be deleted, without any acknowledgement.

Instead, I suggest you read the relevant pages of this website.

Alternatively, if you have very specific queries, direct them to a good forum such as RootsChat Ireland or, where many experienced and knowledgeable family historians will do their best to help you. Alternatively, try Facebook, where there's a large community of Irish genealogists on hand.

If you wish to contact me for non-research reasons, perhaps to pass on information about resources or to provide details of events for my blog, Irish Genealogy News, please feel free to do so. I will respond as quickly as I can, but bear in mind that I'm just one person and I have other work and family commitments. Realistically, it may be a few weeks before I can get back to you.

Please note that all fields followed by an asterisk must be filled in.
