Lynbrook, NY (September 13, 2011) — 
President Obama's visit to Ireland in May of this year to see his great-great-great grandfather's hometown of Moneygall has inspired many Americans to trace their own Irish roots.  And now with the Aer Lingus Vacation Store's new "Discover Your Roots" package, it's never been easier to find out exactly where in the Emerald Isle one of Irish descent hails from.


The Discover Your Roots package makes it incredibly easy to embark on what might seem like a daunting journey.  The participants need to do some good basic research about their Irish ancestor, as two to three weeks prior to their arrival they will need to fill out a questionnaire which includes information such as the name of the Irish born ancestor, the approximate year of birth, birthplace, name of ancestor's parents, spouse (if married in Ireland), date and place of marriage, occupation, religious denomination, date of emigration from Ireland, and state/country where they first settled after emigration. This will then be submitted to The Shelbourne Hotel's own Genealogy Butler, Helen Kelly, an experienced, professional genealogist.


After arriving in Dublin, travelers spend the first night at the five-star Shelbourne Hotel, where they will have a private one-hour consultation with Ms. Kelly[Back to Press Releases Main]
