Here are some of our fantastic testimonials from our happy students.

“I have just completed “Making Sense of Birth Records” and “Making Sense of Death Records” and I highly recommend for anyone researching their family history whether a beginner or, like me, you have dabbled a bit previously. I found these courses easy to follow, providing excellent instruction on how to navigate and source material from numerous online resources.

Sandra’s experience and passion for genealogy shines through in her step by step guide to searching for ancestors, in particular her video tutorials demonstrating worked examples and typical problems you might encounter.

I learnt of many new resources and I quickly discovered records for my ancestors and found new ones I didn’t know existed!”

Carmel Hensey, Dublin, Ireland

“I love this online course. I needed some help and motivation in putting our family tree together. Sandra is very encouraging and has restarted my motivation. The online course suits me as I can work at my own pace and if needed can go back over content that I found a little complicated.

It’s great to have a hobby I can do at home. It also gives our family something interesting to talk about in lockdown! I might even get a few family members to join me in our family tree project. I’d recommend the course and Sandra as a great guide.”

Paula Flanagan, Perth, Australia

“I always came up against obstacles when researching my Irish family tree and wasn’t sure where to turn, so ended up putting my research on the back burner until I happened upon ‘Your Irish Family History’ on Facebook.

I discovered the courses that Sandra has put together along with video tutorials. The courses are really well structured, concise and to the point, and have really helped me make great progress in my search and I’m now further along than I ever thought I could get.

I can take the courses at my own pace which means I’m not tied to a particular time, and I’ve found them hugely helpful in guiding me.

I would highly recommend ‘Your Irish Family History’ for your research. Not only is Sandra very knowledgeable and experienced on the subject, but also very helpful when I contacted her directly.”

Fionnuala Meehan, Co. Wicklow, Ireland

“It is not often you can truly recommend someone without reservation, but for Sandra I easily can as I have absolute faith in her integrity, talent, ability, personality and passion.

Sandra is approachable, pragmatic and detail oriented. She is a highly intuitive and sensitive person who will care deeply about the people she is researching and discovering and will also be the best kind of encouraging friend to those of you who are undertaking the journey of genealogy.”

John Johnson, Washington, USA

“Her tenacity and passion will ensure she will doggedly persevere on projects or details long after us mere mortals have given up. Her work is always of exquisite quality and the level of detail and little extra bits she unearths are truly amazing and will ensure your genealogy record will be something to treasure for many generations.”
