I'm planning a trip to Ireland in September and have been reviewing and researching my Irish family history in advance. Thankfully, my grandparents did a terrific job handing down family information. I have full names of many ancestors born in Ireland between about 1810-1850 who moved to the US in the 1850s and 60s. I also have birth counties for many (Tyrone, Cavan, Carlow, Waterford, Kerry), but only specific towns for a few. I've done some initial searching on Family Search, but didn't find much more than I already had. Searching baptism records through Catholic Parish Registers/NLI was helpful for the those I have birth towns for, but a bit tedious for those I have vague information for (e.g., my grandparents wrote that my County Waterford ancestors were "probably from the area south of County Tipperary").
I've been looking at the Irish Family History Centre's online consultation offering. Does anyone have experience with this? I'm happy to pay a bit to learn more, I'm just hesitant because I'm not sure if they'll be able to find more specific information than I already have.
If anyone knows of other resources to try as well, I'm all ears!
