Introducing the work of Paul MacCotter, MA, PhD, a genealogist and professional academic (lecturer) with a doctorate in medieval history.
Paul has published extensively in these areas in various journals, and also published three books. He specialises in surname history studies and and pre-1800 Irish genealogy, and has published on these matters in the genealogical magazine Irish Roots and the journal Irish Genealogist.
Paul's surname work, in particular is unique, there’s nobody else with his level of academic expertise offering such professional services in Ireland today. This service will be of special interest to those engaged in y-chromosome dna surname studies, as it offers the possibility of testing these results against their historic background.
