Did you know what over the centuries some 10 million people have emigrated from the island of Ireland? Today it's estimated that as many as 70 million people around the world are of Irish descent. Here at EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum and the Irish Family History Centre we offer visitors to Ireland a better understanding of what it means to be Irish.
The Irish Family History Centre are our official genealogy partners, and their centre focuses on bringing Irish genealogy and family history to life with their team of dedicated genealogists and decades of experience in helping people unearth their Irish roots.
Below we've outlined some of these stories they've helped discover, as well as their advice and tips for starting your own research.
The IFHC have helped countless people find their lost Irish connections, and uncover amazing stories of their ancestors. They've also been called upon by US presidents, royalty and Hollywood stars for their expertise.
