Georgina Scally has carried out genealogical research in almost all 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland, and also across the border in the 6 counties of Northern Ireland. She has helped hundreds of people find their Irish roots, connecting them with the towns, villages and hillsides where their ancestors lived. She has also connected many clients with living descendants, something she finds is for many people, one of the most rewarding areas of genealogical research. Her work has also involved liaising with Probate Genealogists in the search for missing or unknown heirs.
Prior to working as a genealogist, Georgina had a successful 25 year long career as a professional field archaeologist, excavating and carrying out research assignments in many parts of the country. One of her larger projects brought her to the west coast of Ireland where she spent almost a decade excavating a small Atlantic island monastery; her book on the results of the excavations was published in 2014, High Island (Ardoileán), Co. Galway Excavation of an Early Medieval Monastery.
Coming from such a background, Georgina has an in-depth knowledge of the Irish countryside and is very interested in local history, something which is reflected in her reports. She also provides HouseHistories and being conveniently based in Dublin city centre runs a fast, efficient, record retrieval service.
As well as being a member of AGI, she is a member of the Irish Genealogical Research Society, The Irish Family History Society, The Association of Professional Genealogists (US) and is a listed researcher with the National Library of Ireland and the National Archives of Ireland. She holds a Diploma in Family History and Genealogy (2011,Distinction), a BA in Archaeology and Geography and a Masters in Rural and Urban Planning. Her interests are manifold, crossing cultural, social and geographical boundaries. She welcomes enquiries from all corners of the planet.
