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 roles.
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 was admitted to membership of APGI in 2012.
