Irish genealogy special offers come in all shapes and sizes and are announced to coincide with traditional festivals (St Patrick's Day/Christmas, for example) and at steady intervals throughout the year.

This page of Irish Genealogy Toolkit is updated regularly, so be sure to bookmark it if you want to be certain of picking up a bargain and keeping the cost of your ancestral search under control.

Here are the current special offers and discounts likely to be of interest to Irish genealogists:

*last update 18 October 2018


For US researchers only: 30% off Ancestry DNA kits

Ancestry.com is offering US researchers a 30% discount on Ancestry DNA kits. This reduces the price from $99 to just $69, excluding taxes and shipping costs.

Ancestry DNA has more than 10 million people in its consumer network, making it the largest in the world, which means you've got the best chance of 'matching' with others already in the database. And, as more people test, so more 'matches' are added to your account.

The special offer ends on Sunday 21 October.





30% off the Irish Genealogy Guide and other books/products

The publishers of the US-based Family Tree magazine and The Family Tree series of genealogy guides – my own Irish Genealogy Guide included – has a post-Independence Day offer on many items in its vast store of books, dvds, cheat sheets, webinars and other resources.

Check out the bargains by clicking the image below to visit the shop.

You'll find my Guide, published last year and still very much up to date, among the best-sellers (blush!) and reduced by 32% from its regular price of US$26.99 to US$18.64. Fantastic value, especially for the target Irish-American researcher who's struggling to work back to Ireland from their immigrant ancestor. It's full of tips and advice to ease what can be a challenging journey.






Irish Times Archive + full online news access: 50% off

Ireland's 'newspaper of record', The Irish Times has a special offer for overseas readers. It gives 50% off the price of either the Standard or Premium digital subscription package for a period of three months. Thereafter, you can either cancel the subscription or pay the regular price.

Both packages provide full access to IrishTimes.com (non-subscribers get access to only a handful of articles a week), to subscriber-only articles, special offers and the Crossword Club. The Premium subscription additionally gives you The ePaper, a digital copy of the print edition.

Importantly for Irish family historians, both these packages give full access to the Irish Times Archive, which includes all editions published since the paper first appeared in 1859.

The regular price of the Standard package is £10, €12, US$12. The discount reduces the cost to £5, €6, US$6.

The regular price of the Premium package is £12, €16, US$18. With the discount, the cost is £6, €8, US$9.
