Welcome

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. See our new Video Links page.

Fermanagh Roots Journal issue 2 is now available for purchase

This is a real collectors’ piece. It has 112 pages in colour, with a beautifully illustrated map of Fermanagh by Marjorie Leonard as its centre fold. The journal has been very well received by those who purchased it.

The journal is a handbook that gives step by step advice to beginners to family history, as well as articles that will enhance the more experienced genealogists with their own research. The contributors are mainly members from FGC and we have articles written by a Canadian and a New Zealander too.
