After a primary degree in history from Trinity College, Dublin, I completed a Certificate in Genealogy/Family History from University College, Dublin. I’ve been working on my own ancestry for over 20 years. My particular interests are in Dublin records and the growing field of genetic genealogy.
My beginner’s genealogy course runs bi-annually in Malahide Community School. Booking is available in September and January through their website. Classes take place on Tuesday evenings during term time.
I am also on the panel for the National Library’s Genealogy Advisory Service, which provides advice to library visitors researching their own ancestry.
My ongoing personal genealogy focus is a One Name Study of the surname Ure in Ireland. Please see my project page.
