We have all of the resources locally with the Offaly Historical & Archaeological Society, an inital assessment is conducted based upon details submitted to http://www.irishmidlandsancestry.com.
The initial research invites a nominal fee of €10, from there the society will be able to advise the cost of a full report or if you are visiting Tullamore you can call to their office Monday through Friday 9am to 4pm.
It is located beside the Tullamore Dew Visitor Centre.
Other sources for your research from home before travelling to Ireland include:
Tullamore has played host to many clan rallys & family reunions.
Visitors from all over the world gather to celebrate their family heritage.
