Irish genealogy - Special offers, discounts and deals

Please see my Advertising Disclosure statements HERE

Genealogy discounts and offers come in all shapes and sizes and are announced to coincide with traditional festivals (St Patrick's Day/Christmas, for example), newer commercially inspired events such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, 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:

Gift packs of Irish Roots magazines

Irish Roots, Ireland's only independent genealogy magazine, has a great gift idea for the genealogist in your life (or treat yourself...  go on, you deserve it).

The quarterly magazine is published in County Wicklow and brings you advice on traditional family history research as well as genetic genealogy; guidance on finding resources for specific areas of Ireland, and on themed collections in North America and Australia; details of newly released or enhanced record-sets; news and comment from Irish genealogy and local history groups; plus Q&As and news of developments relating to Irish genealogy.

MyHeritage DNA usually has a sale running

At almost any time of the year, you should be able to find a discount offer on MyHeritage DNA test kits. The amount of saving varies, with the lowest prices for Black Friday, Christmas and other major events in the calendar, but I think it's fair to say that if you can't find an offer, just wait a few days and another one will come around.

As MyHeritage prefer not to advertise the closing dates of their sales, and I have only a limited amount of time to keep updating this page, I rarely include any specific sale details. The images below are from Black Friday 2023, and were the lowest price of the year.

Whenever you buy, you should be able to take advantage of free shipping for two or more kits. There has in recent times been a Best Value option, too, where you can buy a kit and receive a 30-day trial to MyHeritage's growing record collection database. This is a great option, and one I would take up if I were buying another kit from the company.

MyHeritage Black Friday offers 2023

Prices above are in Sterling (£) but if you click the Order now buttons you should be offered the current price in the currency of your MyHeritage 'geographical territory'.

After more than 15 years online, Irish Genealogy Toolkit is undergoing a facelift.

The process is taking some time. I started with 224 pages to convert. There are 13 left (February 2024), so the end is now in sight. Please bear with me during the ongoing transition.

I hope you like the fresh new design and have become accustomed to the revised layout.
