She explained how the centers work by area, provided us with information to refine our search areas and paperwork to assist with that endeavor. They are non profit; so we made a donation to help...

The staff was very helpful with advice and recommendations.They did help with some lookups for family members. My great great grandfather was from Sligo. He and his mother immigrated to Canada sometime in the 1830s, and he later moved to the United States.

Folks at Heritage Society were very helpful and helped me with maps and back ground info to locate my cousin in County Sligo and my grandfathers farm. Very informative and gracious folks.

I met with Adrian Regan who was very helpful in finding my family from the Sligo area. He found many family members dating back to the early 1800's. He provided me with a map showing the town locations as well as the printout of the family information.

The staff put up with me for about an hour as they spoke to me about genealogy and did checking for records on my family. They gave me advice as to places I should visit, and provided me (for a fee) with a few transcriptions of records that I had missed. Best to contact them in advance of your trip... More
