Leitrim Genealogy Centre is the official genealogy service for County Leitrim. The centre, part of the Irish Family History Foundation's network throughout Ireland, was set up to deal with enquiries from people eager to trace their Leitrim ancestors.
The difficulty faced by many people who have travelled from many lands to trace their family roots was that source material was scattered throughout the county and elsewhere. Now, all available sources have been gathered in one place and Leitrim Genealogy Centre and Leitrim County Library have combined to provide a full-time professional genealogy service for County Leitrim.
Genealogical research can be a time-consuming process. The time it takes to go from an original assessment to the creation of a comprehensive family history report is usually about twelve weeks. Seasonal demand may increase this waiting period slightly so it is recommended to initiate your family research in good time, particularly if it is for a special occasion.
