Breaking Through Irish Ancestry Brick Walls

Just Got Easier...

Have you ever been Frustrated...

Your Irish Hosts - Carina and Mike Collins

...with Genealogy services and forums - the way that they ONLY concentrate on the records and family trees. How easy it is to run into a brick wall - especially with complex Irish Ancestry and Genealogy.

Well, The Green Room is run by Irish people, out of Ireland - and focused on people of Irish ancestry all over the world. We know Irish culture, history, the language - and many of the issues people have with understanding complex Irish Heritage and Ancestry. While genealogy record sites bring you part of the way - we'll bring you all the way home!

If you like Mike & Carina Collins and their weekly "Letters from Ireland" or the pictures on our Facebook page - then you will love the Green Room. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and all-Irish!

"I've been hooked on The Green Room for some time now"

I've been hooked on The Green Room for some time now, and have found it a valuable platform to share a love of everything Irish with others of the vast diaspora who love to return to their native Irish roots, either in the flesh with a trip "back home" or if that is not possible to at least follow those who are fortunate enough to be able to go!

- Des Dineen (Australia)

"It helps me feel connected."

I look forward to receiving news from "Your Irish Heritage", and following up with the Green Room. It somehow helps me to feel connected. I enjoy reading letters from others who are also trying to break down brick walls. "Misery loves company"!! I also like that members are able to help each other. I thank both Mike and Carina, for all that they do to make this happen.

- Nora Headley (USA)

"It's obvious that it is a labor of love."

I can only reiterate what others have already said. There is a genuine feeling of warmth and willingness to help from everyone here. Everyone is so open about sharing what they know about their families and their experiences trying to find more information. Mike, Carina and everyone associated with the operation of the Green Room goes above and beyond to make everyone feel a part of the community. It's obvious that its a labor of love and one that so many of us are truly grateful for.
