The Irish roots in your family tree


Someone wise once said that there are two types of people in the world: those who are Irish, and those who are probably Irish. That may be stretching it a little bit but, because of our nation's history of exploration and emigration, the Irish diaspora reaches almost every part of the world and as a result there are some 8o million people across the globe who can claim Irish heritage, despite our relatively small homegrown population. Luckily, it has never been easier to trace your Irish heritage, with archives and historical documents becoming more and more accessible. But if delving into your family tree to find those Irish roots seems daunting, worry not, because there are many fine services and resources to not only help you, but also provide an unforgettable experience in the process.
