I recently visited the Clare Family Heritage Centre. I spent time with Antoinette at the Centre examining records that related to my Irish ancestors - two brothers who had set off from Clare a hundred or so years earlier. I found Antoinette to be a first class researcher – keen to ensure accurate interpretation of the records and to provide - if possible - a narrative of my ancestral family's relations, land and history rather than simply birth/death events. Shortly after my return to Australia, I received a comprehensive written report profiling my Irish family connections including copies of relevant original records.
Sure it’s a small village location, but the Corofin Clare Heritage Centre is as busy as….! It’s a non-profit, community-based organisation with mostly volunteer labour and minimal resources, and I think they are doing an amazing job with those very precious records. To really make the most of your visit to the Centre, do as much preliminary work as you can and contact them well before you visit to make an appointment. You won’t be disappointed.
