Who would benefit from specific research?
Ideal for those who have specific research that they would like to have carried out.
Specific Research is useful for those who have already utilised a wide range of online and archival sources, and are at a stage of their research where they require a quite specific but limited piece of research to be completed.
Please note that we carry out archival research for the nine counties which make up the historic province of Ulster (Antrim, Armagh, Cavan, Derry/Londonderry, Donegal, Down, Fermanagh, Monaghan, Tyrone).
If you are interested in archival research for another county, please email email@example.com for advice before commissioning research online.
How long will it take?
Specific Research takes 8–10 weeks to complete and costs £120 (+ VAT if EU resident) for a 4-hour search.
PLEASE NOTE: The vast majority of our archival research is carried out in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI), which has recently re-opened after being closed for most of the last 14 months due to Covid regulations. However there is currently (and for the foreseeable future) very restricted access to documents which will have an effect on our usual turnaround period.
