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.
