2018 Irish Research Trips

Valuation Office

   The next Irish Research Trip to Dublin  is scheduled for October 14-21, 2018.  The dates are booked, and we’ll again be staying at Buswells Hotel, just across the street from the National Library.   The Belfast trip is scheduled  the week before, from October 7-13 and I’m very excited to announce that we will be staying at The Titanic Hotel.  Just a 5 minute walk to the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland, this hotel (which is scheduled to open in September of 2017) was built in the historic offices of the Harland & Wolff headquarters building (the builder of the Titanic). It is across the street from the Titanic Museum You can reserve your place in either, or both trips by completing the registration form below and mailing it with your deposit.

   I hope you’ll consider the trip in 2018.  That gives you a good amount of time to prepare.  Registration for each trip is limited to the first 15 researchers.  If you’re not sure if you are ready for the trip, consider scheduling a consultation through genealogyDOTcoach.   

Both the Dublin and Belfast trips are sold out for 2018. Let me know if you would like to be put on the wait list should there be a cancellation, or on the list for 2019.

Comments from previous trips…

“The trip was great from beginning to end and the attention that you gave to everyone’s individual research throughout the week was beyond my expectations."

"I could never have navigated all these repositories in a week without the orientation and support you provided. It would have taken me several trips and far greater expense to find the documents and information I found in one week with you. This was a fabulous opportunity. Thank you for making it available to us.”

“Donna was very knowledgeable and I learned so much about what and where I should be researching.

"The orientation at the NLI was good and help me to find and use the resources I wanted to look at. At the National Archives, I did not know what to look at. It was helpful when we were showed the different indexes and resources and where they were located. The trip was a great experience, thank you.”

“All the help that was given, (esp. by Donna), and the various staff people, defiantly made our trip to both Belfast, and Dublin a howling success. !!!

"Fantastic trip, loved every minute of it, your knowledge , help and company was very much appreciated and I thank you very much."
