The Irish Ancestral Research Association | TIARA is a non-profit organization that promotes Irish genealogy research and education.
Our monthly meetings, conferences, newsletter, and website educate and entertain our members. They also foster interaction with other Irish researchers. Our Irish genealogy projects enhance the knowledge of the community and our members. We do NOT provide individual genealogical research services.
A new feature of the site is member log-in, available under the “Members Only” button. TIARA members log-in to the site to access some exciting new features, available only to TIARA members. Log-in and look for videos of past TIARA meetings, and PDF versions of past issues of the newsletter. New items are under development, and when available you can identify them because they will ask you to log-in to see them.

TIARA is only as good as its volunteers. You do not necessarily have to live in the Boston area or attend meetings to volunteer your time and talent. Please review the Survey of Member Volunteer Interests to see how you can help.
Annual dues are $25.00 per year for individuals and organizations, and $35.00 per year for a family membership (two or more persons at the same address) if the quarterly newsletters are sent as a PDF file via email. An additional $5/yr is charged for members who wish to receive paper copies of the newsletters through the Post Office. Due to higher mailing costs, Canadian and overseas memberships are charged an additional $10/yr for paper copies of the newsletter. Membership runs from January through December.
