Making a difference

Erin’s Call is a social initiative aimed at reuniting the forgotten Irish diaspora with their next of kin.

Behind the initiative is Erin International, an Irish-based firm of probate genealogists that provides specialist tracing services worldwide.

With offices in Ireland and UK, Erin International has traced thousands of Irish people and their descendants worldwide.

The goal of Erin’s Call is to assist in finding long-lost family members, as well as helping to locate next of kin when an Irish emigrant has passed away.

We want to;

  • Help families find emigrants with whom they’ve lost touch

  • Help establish whether someone is living or may have passed

  • Help long-time emigrants reconnect with family members

  • Trace next of kin where an emigrant has passed away

  • Assist emigrants who are seeking to return to Ireland

If you have a query relating to any of the scenarios listed above, please submit the details through our Enquire button below.

PLEASE NOTE: Erin’s Call is NOT a general genealogy service.

Our aim is to assist Irish people and members of the diaspora who need specialist assistance under extraordinary circumstances.

I would like to thank Erin International for your kind assistance and excellent work, which enabled this citizen of Irish heritage to have the dignity of family members informed, and in attendance at his funeral.

I want to thank you for your heartfelt efforts to find the relatives. Your efforts and the response of people across the world have shown there is always hope through humanity. I am especially touched by these favourable developments as an Irish-American keenly interested in reimagining the lives of Irish relatives separated by emigration and the unforgiving spreading of time
