What is IslandAncestry.com

IslandAncestry.com is a genealogy website. It's creator is a Bere Islander and is very much an amateur genealogist

The goal of the website is to provide a central location for individuals from the Beara peninsula, Bere Island and further afield to create a family tree. This can be linked to existing trees with permission of the owner and originator of the family tree

By doing this I hope to create a matrix of relationships within the local area. For any genealogist the hope of unearthing some unknown relationships, cousins, picture, sources or information of family life from the past is what drives you.

Why IslandAncestry.com

For the past 8 years or so I have been searching for my ancestors. I have searched online for ship passenger lists, Argentinian records, Irish Census, Irish Civil records and local history. This has helped me trace my maternal and paternal grandparents and great-grandparents

Recently after becoming a father myself it sparked again. I have spent time looking at his maternal grand parents and great grandparents. I think it will be nice to leave him with a full family tree up to 9 generations back


The privacy levels are by default strict. What is seen by other users is very much in the hands of the owner of the particular family tree

Other users only see as little or as much as the tree's owner allows

Users must create an account here and login to create or gain access to any tree
