nealogist based in Dublin since 1990. My background can be found at: www.heirsireland.com. My main area of practice is probate genealogy, locating rightful heirs in iinternational ntestate estates. I also spend a lot of time in the GRO research room in Dublin so I have extensive experience in civil registration. I have lectured on Irish genealogy in Ireland, the U.S., Canada and the U.K. My husband and I will be speaking in Waltham, Massachusetts at Celtic Connections conference in August (15th and 16th).
I'd be happy to answer brief questions as needed. …
