Fermanagh Genealogy Centre is an independent registered charity (NIC100414) run entirely by volunteers with extensive local and genealogical knowledge.
We are the delivery partner for genealogical services at Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, based at Fermanagh Visitor Information Centre in Enniskillen Castle.

During the unforeseen curtailment of our events and activities, we have been searching the internet and it’s amazing what you can find.

On YouTube we found Coming Home stories as travellers from across the globe visited the land of their forefathers:-

You can follow the story of a New Zealand Television presenter as she, assisted by Frankie Roofe and John Cunningham, discovers her roots in Fermanagh. Click here

We moved to the new Visitor Centre at Enniskillen Castle at the beginning of August 2016.

During normal times we are open for family history consultations on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 2pm to 4.30pm. Appointments at the Centre can be booked between 2.15pm and 3.15pm via:

Phone:+44(0)28 6632 500 or Emailcastle@fermanaghomagh.com

This replaces the online booking system we had previously used, run by Fermanagh & Omagh Council .

We also close for all of December & January

These can take a while to answer in the busy months as we only have a few volunteers.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

We depend on charitable donations to fund our running costs so that we can continue our support those with Fermanagh ancestry. You can donate by clicking on the ‘Donate’ button. We look forward to meeting you in the centre or to hearing from you over the internet! Thank you and good luck with your search!
