Objectives: To develop a full time genealogy research business which will cater for public queries regarding family ancestry and actively market that business both at home and abroad.

Services: To provide a professional family history research service in local centres throughout Ireland. Local centres do not receive any subsidy for offering such a service so fees charged to clients fund the service. To provide an online research service on behalf of the local centres.

Training: The majority of IFHF centres sponsored community training and employment schemes operated by FÁS in the Republic of Ireland. Some centres continue to do this work. The primary interest of the state’s employment and training agency is in the vocational training, work experience and certification these schemes provide.
The availability of highly qualified supervisors and computer equipment has made these schemes ideal for high quality, cost effective training and employment experience. A by-product of these schemes is the development of the genealogy databases.
