Education is a core focus of the Irish Ancestry Research Centre (IARC). As well as training in genealogy & research skills, educational services offered by IARC include a range of university accredited courses. We provide at the University of Limerick a Certificate in History of the Family & Genealogical Methods. This certificate in History of Family is also available through distance learning online. In partnership with the Adult Continuing Education (ACE) at University College Cork (UCC), we offer a Diploma in Genealogy Studies.  To review other course options please see our Genealogy workshop page.
