Ireland Reaching Out (IrelandXO) is a non-profit organisation that has been helping people of Irish descent to reconnect with their ancestors’ place of origin since 2010. The organisation is founded on a vast network of volunteers who have a wealth of knowledge of local records.
Ireland Reaching Out has built up a robust reputation for helping people navigate the vast amount of family history information online and in doing so has developed a large body of expert advice for those interested in finding out more about their Irish ancestry.
IrelandXO’s course has been developed hand-in-hand with some of the top genealogy practitioners in Ireland and is designed to introduce key concepts and research strategies. It allows you to not only understand your family history but to engage with it hands on. Not only does this course teach you the fundamentals about Irish family history, it also enables you to create and share profiles of your ancestors online, as well as providing you with a completely free forum for asking questions of the IrelandXO community.
