Wonderful experience with Vincent's assistance
Sep 2019
My sister and I came to County Tyrone to research my 2nd gr-grandfather and his family. Vincent was able to research and find another child that I was unaware of. Vincent pickex us up at our hotel and drove us all around the countryside. We visited the old family farmstead and to several churchyards for our research. I doubt tbat we xould have had such a fruitful search on our own. Vincent was kind and very knowledgable about the area. We highly recommend his help!

A wonderful family experience
Aug 2019
I found Vincent Brogan”s website a few months ago while trying to research our family history before our trip to Ireland and NI. We emailed back and forth many many times. We agreed upon him doing research and giving us a tour. He picked us up at our BnB near Omagh and took us to the church where my husbands GGGgrandfather and grandmother were married in 1856. His lovely colleague Eddie let us in and showed us the church book records. It was the highlight of our ten day trip.
He then took us to other churches in the area and the ancestral family farm. We never could have done this on our own. It was an experience we will never forget. I highly recommend his services.

Tyrone Genealogy Search And Tour
Jun 2019 • Family
Vincent Brogan provided me, my wife and daughter an enjoyable and informative tour of my ancestors' townlands in Western Tyrone. Prior to our tour, Vincent had conducted research which added to the genealogical data we had already compiled. Vincent's tour and research data provided historical context and gave us a better grasp of the political, historical and day-to-day conditions that our ancestors experienced. He even provided warm sunny weather! We recommend Vincent for your genealogical research and tour needs.

Unforgettable trip to County Tyrone
May 2019 • Couples
I was beyond delighted to find Vincent Brogan to help make the most of our time in Omagh. I had some knowledge of my family connections there but Vincent brought everything wonderfully to life! I saw where my ancestors lived, learned about what is was like for them before they came to America, visited with close neighbors who knew my ancestors and Vincent even arrange for me to meet a cousin which has opened up a whole new branch on my family tree.

It truly was a remarkable day that I’m still reflecting on as I’ve returned home. I know without his thoughtful planning, research and deep knowledge of this area my trip would not have been nearly as memorable. Thank you Vincent!

I'm glad I was able to make your trip special. It was such a coincidence that I visited your relative with my grandmother back in the 1960s. They were friends and neighbours. As I still have family in that area I was able to make the connection to other people who knew her also.

Vincent Brogan of Tyrone Roots provided an unforgettable two-day trip through NI
Oct 2018 • Couples
My wife and I took our first trip to Ireland (NI) and sought genealogical and guiding services through Tyrone Roots. Vincent Brogan made our experience unforgettable. His genealogy assistance was personal,thoughtful and candid. His assistance as a guide was perfect! Vincent provided far more than a tour. It was as if we had a PhD in Northern Ireland History with us on every step. He was insightful, creative, incredibly knowledgeable. Our discussions went beyond sightseeing. Vincent also advised us on our travel plan and unexpectedly added genealogy to our visit. OUTSTANDING!

Painless Paleontology
Aug 2018
We're doing a get-together for our family next year in Omagh which encompasses lots of people from several countries and many who have never been here. We asked Vincent to start gathering some information together for our family so we could disseminate Ito everyone. He has been accommodating and available and we will be using his services as we get closer to the dates next year so we can do a genealogical drive by on the places where all our ancestors came from.
Our next pass with him is to go sideways to find all the inlaws (outlaws) as well and document how the fabric of this family was woven over the last century and a half.
Thanks Vincent.

Poor communication but lovely man
Aug 2018 • Business
Planned my trip 6 months in advance and tried hard to communicate with vincent. Sadly emails went unanswered most of the time. Seemed more keen on his price than actual research. After supplying all my research he was unable to provide any genuine information that wasn't already researched. Charged extra for responding to emails. Lovely man but not worth the £200 for 4 hours.

I'm sorry that you record you had a negative experience. I understood after we met that you had met the goals for your trip. I appreciate that you made a big commitment in time and money. As you say you carried out the research in advance and the bulk of my fee was for the day tour we went on in my car, with 2 hours for my time prior to your visit.

Wonderful walking tour of Omagh
Jun 2018 • Couples
We were in Omagh for the week and looked for things to do - VIncent had good reviews on Trip Addvisor and he was available to give a walking tour of the town. Vincent is so knowledgeable and personable, offering a breadth and deep of Information delivered with the real love of the town and her people, the progress as well as tragedies, as only a native son can convey. Vincent makes the history of Omagh come to life, using source materials that he carries with him including copies of ancient maps, sketches, and more recently photos. A very worthwhile afternoon with a very special man.

A precious and unforgettable day spent with Tyrone Roots
Mar 2018 • Friends
Vincent did an amazing job to help trace the family history of our great-grandmother who left County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, in 1895. He researched all of her siblings, parents, grandparents, and aunts and uncles. Then he helped arrange visits with two cousins descended from my great-grandmother's brother, one still living in the same house our great-grandmother was born in. It was a wonderful and unforgettable day spent with Vincent.

Memorable Day!
Aug 2017 • Couples
We spent the day with Vincent touring the Dungannon area of County Tyrone in Northern Ireland where my 2nd great grandparents lived in the mid-1800s. Vincent has a wealth of local, historical knowledge of this area and had done research ahead of our visit into the area and the land my family occupied. As a result, we were able to see the exact place they lived and meet the current resident, a descendant of the man who first took over the property from my family. Our day was most pleasant and certainly exceeded my expectations. I went to Northern Ireland with a few facts, but I left with a story! I highly recommend Vincent and Tyrone Roots.
