For generations, Ballymoney folk have left their homes to travel across the world and begin new lives abroad. Many were pioneers who helped to build the New World in North America, New Zealand and Australia. Others travelled across the Irish Sea seeking work in Britain. They all left behind a land that they loved and ensured that their descendents would always be proud of their family origins back in Co. Antrim.
In recent years, Ballymoney Borough Council has measured a considerable increase in inquiries from families researching Northern Ireland Genealogy in this region.

Ballymoney Ancestry has two aims:
Please explore the wealth of information we have provided and hopefully you will be enticed into coming to enjoy the beautiful and historic Borough of Ballymoney, land of your ancestors.
Ballymoney Ancestry regrets that it cannot carry out family history research on behalf of members of the public.
Ballymoneyancestry.com is considering establishing a database of suitably qualified researchers who would provide a research service to those users of the site who require additional significant and detailed research to be carried out on their behalf. See News section for further details.
