Many Irish families have roots which span across the counties of Ireland. Both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland have their own record collections and archive offices meaning that it can be difficult to connect family lines across country and county borders. With Ancestor Network’s Northern Ireland branch, we are uniquely able to offer genealogical research across the counties of Ulster and the whole island of Ireland simultaneously. We provide an experienced, friendly and professional service for genealogy and probate research in Ulster.

A common research goal is to trace ancestors back to the Ulster Plantations of the early seventeenth century or to the earlier Gaelic clans. Little documentary evidence survives for this period but DNA testing can bring additional information to help trace ancestral origins. When the paper trail ends, DNA testing can show family connections to specific areas of Ulster.
