Meet the Author

Mike Healy is a professional genealogist specializing in helping people around the world trace and find their Irish ancestors' origins and birthplaces in Ireland. A Trinity College Dublin, Ireland graduate, Mike developed his interest and passion for Irish genealogy through the study of his own Irish family history, stimulated by lengthy Healy family history conversations and discussions with his relatives in Ireland. In addition to his Irish genealogy pursuits, Mike has an Ireland travel photography business, Ballycastle Photography. On his annual trips to Ireland, he loves photographing Ireland’s many ancient sites, castles, landscapes, and pubs. Mike believes in capturing the raw beauty of Ireland in his photos, without much post processing touch-up. Mike named his businesses Ballycastle Irish Genealogy and Ballycastle Photography in honor of his Irish grandparents who were both born near Ballycastle, a quaint Irish village on the wild, scenic Atlantic coast of north County Mayo, Ireland. His Irish grandparents immigrated to America in 1912 and settled in Baltimore, Maryland.

    Recommend for those doing later 19th century research

    This would be a good beginning guide for those doing research on Irish ancestors who immigrated to the US in the later part of the 19th century. For someone like myself whose ancestors came over in the late 18th century or earlier there was little helpful information. Since there is nothing to indicate this in the title or description, I gave it only 4 stars. For others it may be quite helpful.
