Thank you for the incredible amount of research completed regarding my family in Londonderry circa 1700. Your efforts were considerable and outstanding

Again, thank you.

I filled out Ulster Ancestry’s initial questionnaire into my family’s history both maternal and paternal. They quickly responded to my inquiry outlining a proposed research strategy.

Ulster Ancestry have over 2 years completed 12 separate full research reports for me. I started with research into my father and mother, expanding into reports on my grandparents,which grew into a very difficult search for the birth of my grandmother, Mary Hagan, but he finally found her.

Ulster Ancestry’s final report was a deep Hagan report going into the 1700s. The majority of pre-1922 records were destroyed in the Irish Civil War by a fire at the Public Record Office, so this was a work of great determination.

Every email enquiry I sent has been thoroughly researched and promptly answered. I will use all their reports as a roadmap into my family’s history for years to come. With every email , (and there have been over 1350 of them!), Robert makes me feel like he works only for me.

Robert has an enormous amount  of knowledge and data floating around in his head. He is old school, doing “boots on the ground” research, collecting birth certificates,marriage and death information. I don’t know when this man sleeps.

I wouldn’t hesitate for a second, to ask Ulster Ancestry do additional reports for me, if there was anything left to research for my family. He has built a vast knowledge of Ulster, Northern Ireland. I feel lucky that my parents were from Belfast, Northern Ireland and that he could help me in my family research.

The professionalism of Ulster Ancestry is obvious.I am a repeat customer of their services. I have previously hired genealogists in both the USA and Canada. The quality of the work by Ulster Ancestry is the best I have experienced in every aspect. As a client, I had only an ancestral name, year of birth, religious denomination, and a County in Ireland as a starting point to my inquiry.

I had no knowledge of parish and townland locations or of the Irish record keeping practice of listing phonetic variations as homonyms of family names.Ulster Ancestry acted both as a teacher and a guide into the field of Irish genealogy. Ulster Ancestry demonstrates a broad based detailed knowledge of the available genealogical documentary resources, together with an understanding of the history, economy, and sociology of Northern Ireland.

I am a completely satisfied customer.

Just wanted to say thank you for your splendid research on my  family. I knew it would be a big challenge, but you have achieved a splendid result.  I always had a question mark as to whether I had found our right family but now I have certainty. You have also given me a great incentive to have another holiday in Ireland.  On our last trip we just did not have enough information on the family.  Special thanks to you again for your efforts. My husband and I are both delighted with the book.

Best wishes.  W G    New South Wales  Australia

Hi Robert, just a word or two to let you know that I just got back from being away from home to find your amazingly thorough report. What a magnificent job you’ve done and it’s going to take a while to digest.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.   MOD

Thanks so much for your extremely detailed response.  I’m certain it will prove to be a tremendous help in locating the land where my ancestors once lived so many years ago.   Many Americans of Irish decent have no idea from where in Ireland their ancestors hail.  Having had the good fortune of procuring the services of a professional genealogist of your particular expertise and caliber, the origin of my own Irish ancestors is no longer a mystery.Thanks again,

Chris Cal. USA

We want to thank you so much for the amazing job you did!Such excitement in our house, discovering the answers to questions wondered about for generations! We are so grateful for the extra time you put in. Some of the family are getting on in years and you have made them so happy to finally know the proper names and dates of these long lost lives still so alive in all our family memories.

Thank you so very much. You will hear from us again I promise we also have a mystery on the other side of the family!

Fabulous work
Yours, Eillen

I just wanted to thank you for your help. Last November I received my Irish Citizenship . It means so much to me…..thank you again for all your help.Linda Cl. USA…

Robert found more in 4 hours than I found myself in 20 years of searching.
New South Wales

Thank you SO much for this information.  You have completely overflowed my heart, my eyes , with all this wonderful wonderful information.  To know about my family, and the actual town where they had lived is the most valued of all resources. Also, to know the names of relations at the time, opens all avenues for further research. Again, thank you so very much.                        SW  Fredericksburg, Virginia. USA

Robert provided lots of initial information so that I was able to ask him to do a targeted search. I’m already formulating my next question/search for Ulster Ancestry. Thank you for a great experience

This task was the first one that Ulster Ancestry has completed for me. It won’t be the last. The researcher did what he said he would do, when he said he would do it. I was very pleased with the job he did and the manner in which he completed the project.

I appreciate all of your efforts on my behalf. I’ll be more than happy to recommend your services to anyone who asks me about a researcher in Ireland in the future.

Really appreciate all your hard work and research. I now probably know as much as I ever will about where my family came from and the kind of life their lived in Ireland. You provide a fantastic service, and I’m really grateful for the things you did and found for me.

Yesterday was my birthday. Your research was the best present I could ever have received. Many, many, thanks

Received you wonderful Report today. Oh thank you so much, it will be so appreciated by the family!!! Again thank you so much. Using your organization was one of my best ever choices and I would and will recommend Ulster Ancestry research to anyone .

I just wanted to acknowledge receipt of your report; Many thanks! What a terrific job you have done. This is the first real solid lead we’ve had on my ancestor Thomas *** in many many years.

I received the ancestry report on my great great great grandfather today in the mail and I was thrilled. What the researcher found out about the family farm gave us all the answers. What she could never have known was that the names listed on my GGG grandpa’s Will, as witnesses, were the family who immigrated to the U.S.A. with my grt.grt grandpa and his family. They had a brother and sister who lived here already and we suspect sponsered both families coming to America. The new information we received from you gave lots that your researcher would not have known about, but that I could make connections with . The listing of three of the missing children baptisms was also wonderful Thank you so much. We are thrilled by the quality and content of your work.

I just want to thank you once again for your work in finding my natural mother after nearly 50 years of trying on my part. Over the years I had made several attempts but all ended in failure, until I contacted you. Starting with only a name and a workplace in the 1940s {not a home address } within 12 weeks you gave me my mother’s current address and the names and addresses of 2 half brothers I never knew I had I can unreservedly recommend you services to anyone who is in a similar position to my own.

Thank you so much for your hard work, expertise and the impressive book. My family are very thrilled to have all this additional knowledge about our history. I hope to visit Ulster soon and the places marked on the map and see where my family came from. Thank you very much for putting in extra time. I am so very grateful to you and to ulsterancestry.com. I will most certainly recommend you to other people who have Ulster ties, who wish to have their family researched. Sincerely,
M E Ontario Canada

I received your research book on my ancestors yesterday. I am so very very pleased with your work. I’m still going through the names and dates. Many of them I’m finding are the same as other sources which confirms their authenticity. I’m very grateful to you for persevering with viewing records which were in such bad shape. I realize it is very time consuming and understand you put in much more time in than you charged for. I also appreciate that. Again I want to thank you for all your time and effort. You will hear from me again.

I don’t know if words can express how much I appreciate and value the research you have done on John **** and Frances ***** It is so much more than I expected. A wonderful history lesson on Moira, County Down. I was so pleased to receive the 1785 land lease.
Barbara W  North Carolina

I say that I took the day reviewing your report and all I can say is “Wow!” and you can even multiply that “Wow” a few times. I have just been contacted by a great grandson of W**** I***** and he asked if I had any info. With your research I was able to provide him with the date of his death and much more. Now I’m starting to see how other trees interconnect with mine.When you start going back many generations you can have thousands of connections and that is mind boggling. With much thanks,
Richard. CA

Thank you so very much.Very exciting to see the actual proof !  There are quite a few other researchers who will be happy to see this.
Cheers, Jo . Victoria Australia

The report arrived in the post today and I am absolutely delighted with it. The level of detail is amazing and having all the supporting documents is an unexpected bonus.  My sincere thanks for getting this to me at such short notice, I know my mother will be thrilled with it. I think my summer may be spent in the northwest  visiting the places our ancestors lived!
Thanks again, Mark.  Northern Ireland.

My greatest appreciation for the fine research you undertook for my Acheson ancestors in Ulster.  This is a true tribute to the professional work of your organization, and I thank you. You gave me a solid feel for the people and the environment of the times back then, in and around Omagh.
Warmest regards, Jim B.  Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Thank you for sending over such a beautifully prepared report which has filled me with great excitement!  The details that you have provided really do seem to tie in with my research but more especially with the old family photographs which kicked this whole investigation off.  I would be more than happy to commission you to spend more time as I’m sure that there are many avenues left to explore further.
Kind regards  Alison H   Midlothian,  Scotland

I’m writing purely to thank both of you for your efforts in providing me with 1824 Tithe Applotments. It’s not just a thank you for these, but also for the tone in which your responses have come through, and your follow-up (i.e. keeping me informed) throughout the process. Please know how much your efforts have been appreciated.
Kindest Regards,  Raewyn  NSW,  Australia

My many years of searching for this part of my family are now over and I have you to thank for that. I very much appreciate the work you carried out for me and I now look forward to sharing information, photos and stories with my new found second cousins!

Just like the last time I worked with Ulster Ancestry, they provided prompt service and got the exact records that I requested. Having access to someone like this makes research overseas possible. I just wish I knew more to make better use of Robert’s skills.

I have been spending some time with your latest document and just looking at the depth of this wonderful piece of research even though it has been a few times now I still say, Wow! You have set the bar really high on this one.  I am  eternally grateful,

Just wanted to thank you for the research book you sent – much more than I was expecting. I’ve enjoyed going through it all and particularly loved all the photo-copied documents in the back.It’s all been very informative and I’ve found the whole thing fascinating.I can now pass it in to my father who’ll really enjoy reading it as well. My son will be home on Monday so am looking forward to showing it to him.Again, many thanks – you may well hear from me again as I’d be interested in finding out about my mother’s family.
Kind regards,  IR  N.Ireland

Just a word or two to let you know that I just got back from being away to find your amazingly detailed report. What a magnificent job you’ve done and it’s going to take a while to digest. You put so much of your local knowledge and background into tracing our man.I’m going to trawl through the book more closely and you will definitely hear from me again.Much appreciated and I go now to take in more of your great research,
Thank you, thank you.
With much gratitude,

At my request, you conducted excellent research into my Fermanagh based ancestors: Your research established that when my grandfather was born, his parents were living in Ballyreagh. I am traveling to Ireland in June and plan to spend an afternoon in the Enniskillen area.   My upcoming visit to the Tempo area may be a once in a lifetime event.  Now armed with the exact information as to where my ancestor’s lived, will make it this so much more special. Only your detailed work has made this possible .
Many thanks
