Testimonials

“I wish to thank the staff at the Woodford Heritage Centre for the wonderful work they did on my family tree, especially Julie Roche and Caroline Flaherty. They did a fantastic job and I am very pleased with the results, I did not expect so much detail.”

” I wish to thank Monica Hynes for her very personal support delivered with such care regarding my ancestry and my last living relative in Ireland, I extend my most sincere gratitude to Monica. Her creative involvement honoring the Blackton family gravestone for past, present and future generations is incomparable. So too was her keen orchestration of our most recent visit with Jack in ways I could never have imagined, truly beyond noteworthy, done thoughtfully without fanfare. Further, her support and direction continue as I address other concerns from abroad. Monica not only does the job, she lives it as the best example of our Galway heritage as well as the needs of our descendents near and far. What words could ever express my appreciation!”
