The Irish Ancestral Research Association

TIARA (The Irish Ancestral Research Association) is a non-profit organization established to develop and promote the growth, study and exchange of ideas among people and organizations interested in Irish genealogical and historical research and education. Our monthly meetings educate and entertain our members, as well as foster interaction with other Irish researchers. We do NOT provide individual genealogical research services.

TIARA members and friends are welcome (Fàilte) to stop and visit the TIARA office

Come visit to mingle with other members and browse the TIARA Library.

Need to grab a bite to eat before the meeting?  We are across the street from the Ninety-Nine restaurant.  Several other eat in / take out spots are within a short walk.   The TIARA Office is located at 84 South St., Waltham, MA, on the corner of South St. & Charles St.
Use the side door entrance from the parking lot on Charles Street.

NOTE: TIARA‘s tenancy at 84 South St, (possible sale of the office condo we sublet) is uncertain so we will post our Fàilte Friday dates monthly.   Check this website before meetings at Brandeis.
