The ‘Ireland Reaching Out’ project is a national initiative to re-connect the diaspora with their ancestral parishes throughout Ireland. It is known as reverse genealogy whereby the local community or Reaching Out volunteers seek out those who have emigrated and their descendants and invite them back to their home place to take part in community life or to visit and re-connect with living relatives. Tulla Ireland Reaching Out has been very active in this project in the last two years and continues to meet and greet those descendants.
The local Tulla branch can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We aim to help guests who need assistance teaching their Irish family history & who want to learn more about their irish ancestry. We can point you in the right direction to help trace your roots local history, local families in the area as well as information libraries, heritage sites, graveyards, churches, church records & genealogy centre.
