    Genealogy Research Service

    We offer an in-person research service at Experience Glasnevin. We can help you both with refining your search criteria and guiding you through our online search facility. Alternatively, our staff will perform the search for you, using a combination of our digitised records and archive registers. Retrieved records are published directly within the search history associated with your registered account, so all you have to do is sign in and review your search history. Note that additional fees may apply but you will be advised of these fees upon reviewing your requests.

    'Thank you for a fantastic interesting day, to the excellent presenters and most helpful volunteers. I am inspired to go home and start researching. I would definitely recommend this day.'

    Family History Workshop

    Do you want to get started on your family tree, but don’t know where to start? Are you in the process of piecing the history of your ancestors together and need a little guidance on some best practice? Our Family History Workshops are the perfect place to do just that.

    Genealogy events centre around the burial records of Glasnevin Cemetery which detail each and every person who has been buried here since 1832. During a workshop you will learn the following:

    • How to access the digitised Dublin Cemeteries Trust records
    • How to navigate our online genealogy database when carrying out research at home
    • How the records can help you with your research
    • How to assess Irish birth, marriage and death records
    • How to access and assess Irish census records
    • You will also learn about details to watch out for in the various records, which you won’t find on the internet
