Are you Irish? Do you know where in Ireland your family came from? Have you every considered researching your family's history? Genealogy can answer these and many other questions about your family and it's history, from discovering your ethnic and cultural heritage to determining hereditary illnesses.

Genealogy, the study of your Family History, is one of the most popular hobbies in the United States! More and more Americans are interested in discovering their roots, their cultural heritage, and learning the part that their family played in the great American Experience. The Irish make up one of the largest groups of immigrants to the United States. Many Americans enjoy discovering their Irish Roots.

Many people ask how long does it take to research family history? To be perfectly honest, there is no firm answer. Everyone’s family is unique; as unique as each individual. One person’s family can be difficult and time-consuming while another family can be easy and successful in a very short time. But anyone who has researched their family history will tell you, the fun is in the search and discovery.
