Who would benefit from an initial assessment?
Ideal for those who are not sure how to get started with their Irish research.
What is the purpose of an initial assessment?
The purpose of an initial assessment is to highlight the potential for a successful in-depth genealogical investigation. Once it is complete, you can decide whether or not to proceed with a Full Report. An initial assessment can also be used for those planning a research trip to Belfast as a possible workplan or signposting exercise for the next steps in their personal research objectives.
An initial assessment explores the feasibility of archival research by identifying sources of potential relevance for your family history. In some instances you may receive factual genealogical data relevant to your personal research in addition to sound advice on the research possibilities presented by the information you provide.
An initial research assessment costs £50 (£40 for Guild members).
*IMPORTANT* Please note that due to extremely high demand for this popular service, an assessment will now take up to 8 weeks, although we will endeavour to complete each one as soon as possible.
