Michael was born to an Irish mother from South Armagh and a second generation Irish father
whose family moved from Kilrush in Co. Clare to Blackburn, Lancashire. His parents were married
in wartime Liverpool and Michael was brought up in Lancashire. After graduating from University
College London with a degree in economics and politics, Michael enjoyed a career in information
technology, working for several large British and American companies in senior project management
During his life, Michael developed a keen interest in genealogy and spent a lot of his spare time
unravelling his own Irish and English family history across Co. Armagh and Co. Clare in Ireland and
Lancashire in England. Michael lives in Westport and has recently retired from full-time work, which
has enabled him to devote more time to his passion for genealogy.
Last year Michael established his own professional genealogical research service, Family Lines. This
concentrates on helping people who do not live in Ireland to do their own family history research, by
providing practical help on the ground in Ireland. Michaelís special interest is in tracing Irish families
who have settled in North America and Great Britain.
Michael has a B. Sc. (Econ) degree from the University of London and is also a member of the
Association of Professional Genealogists (APG).
Michael applied for membership of APGI in 2011 and was admitted earlier this year.
