East Galway Family History Society
The East Galway Family History Society Co. Ltd. is based in the village of Woodford, in southeast County Galway. It is located at the Woodford Heritage Centre - a former school building dating back to 1834 located on Barkhill, at the southern end of the village. Set up in 1991, the Society was established to provide a genealogical research service for national and international clients through the collection, transcription and computerisation of historical records for the East Galway area. It is a designated centre of the Irish Genealogical Project which is a countrywide network of centres that transcribes and computerises genealogical records along with providing an ancestry tracing service for the public.
