Chicago Irish Genealogy

Ellen and Elizabeth are Professional Genealogists from Chicago Irish Genealogy.  From basic to complex jobs, we work for families around the world.    With our years of experience and credentials throughout Illinois and the Midwest, we conduct Chicago Genealogy research for clients anywhere in the U.S., as well as Ireland, England, Canada, Australia, Europe and more.    

Affordably priced, we are often less than half of what large genealogy companies charge, and you can hire us for projects big or small as we do not have a minimum fee.   

In addition to building detailed ANCESTRY TREES for families, we specialize in:  

  1. Document Retrieval from the Cook County Archives & Courthouse
  2. Chicago History Museum Research
  3. Newberry Library Research
  4. National Archives Chicago Research
  5. Chicago Catholic Archdiocese Research
  6. Chicago Cemetery Searches
  7. Adoption & DNA Match Assistance

We are tenacious and thorough, which is why Law Firms and Private Investigators from around the world have hired us in locating missing heirs.  We have also helped edit a fictional story about an adoption for a famous Irish author.  And currently, we are wrapping up a 4-year project with former producers of the show "WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE".  This project included extensive research in the US, Ireland and Eastern Europe (Russia/Ukraine).   Our unique personal experience even includes the discovery of our Mayflower ancestors, and finding the birth parents of our adopted grandmother in Chicago circa 1900.    

We’d like to help you as well!  Give us your research goal, tell us about your mystery, and we’ll get to work.
