About Ancestral Line

Ancestral Line Family Trees and Family History

Ancestral Line was founded by me, Séamus O'Donoghue, an extensive researcher and author whose works have been published under my own name and the pseudonym A.J. Carron. I grew up in the west of  Ireland, in a little place called Poulaphuca in county Clare, and was educated at the local primary school in Ballynacally village and at St. Flannan's College, Ennis.

I hold diplomas in Creative Writing and Communication Skills, and have achieved CIW and ACA accreditation. I have worked as an Artefact Cataloguer for a London museum and was also a licensed and skilled Commercial Aircraft Structural Technician for 18 years. I apply the high-quality work ethics associated with these industries to Ancestral Line's research, presentations, and reports.

My interest in genealogy and family history began many years ago when I decided to research my own ancestral lines. Since then I have helped countless people trace their ancestors, both as researcher and genealogy consultant. The passion and knowledge I have acquired encouraged me to offer Ancestral Line's services to the general public.
