Multi Generation Family SearchSligo Heritage Researchers.jpg

This is the most comprehensive research option that we provide. It covers in-depth research across multiple generations of a single family line, up to 1921, using all genealogical sources available to us for research here at our centre.

To commission research under this option, a non-refundable deposit of €75.00 euro is required in advance. This fee is based on the time spent on research and not necessarily on the results.

In the event of a successful search, this fee will also include the provision of up to twelve record transcripts pertaining to your ancestors. If a significant number of additional records are uncovered in the course of this research, we will provide you with a quotation for the costs of obtaining these. A discount rate will apply as a fee has already been paid.

Please note that we will only recommend this research option, when there is a reasonable chance of success. This can only be done after an assessment of the information you submit in the  application form, which you can download below.

Research Processing Time

Please note that Genealogical research is a time consuming process. From when we receive your completed Research Questionnaire and fee, to the completion of a Multi Generation Family Search normally takes about eight to twelve weeks.

Seasonal demand can increase this waiting period, so we always recommend initiating your research in good time, well in advance of a planned visit to County Sligo. This is also of importance if the research is being carried out for a special family occasion.
