What Will You Discover?

Family Ties Ancestry was established by Mary Kate Cahill in 2018. Hailing from North Wexford near Gorey town, an area very rich in history, Mary Kate’s background is in legal research for which she has spent over 17 years working in the US before returning to Ireland in 2003.  During this time, she gained a comprehensive understanding of litigation skills, court procedures, precedents and government regulations.

Mary Kate has a personal interest in genealogy having commenced researching her own family history in 2013 and since that time has found relatives living in the UK, the US and Australia.  She completed a Diploma in Genealogy and Family History in University College Cork in 2017 [and is currently seeking affiliate status with the Affiliate Genealogists Ireland].

She has the unique ability to converse with overseas clients as she has lived abroad for seventeen years – this has equipped her with a better appreciation of diverse cultures and in tailoring her research skills to meet each client’s individual needs.
