The family history unit is an integral part of
the Mayo North Heritage Centre and was set up to carry out genealogical
research for clients whose ancestors came from the northern part
of Co Mayo. It is a member of the Irish Family History Foundation
and is the designated centre for genealogy in North Mayo. The unit
has been indexing records since 1983 and has amassed a wealth of
local knowledge that is an essential part of the process of putting
together comprehensive family trees.
