Local Genealogy

Bailieborough Heritage Society have several members who can support your search for local ancestral connections, and can offer information about local and online resources that are available. While we are happy to help, please bear in mind that we are a small voluntary group with limited resources, and while we will do all we can it is important that you have already gathered some information before making contact with us.

There are several online resources which can help in your initial search, which we are happy to share, and a series of articles about local places and people that may be of use to you.
