Ancestry.com, the world’s largest family history resource is moving to Dublin to run its International operations. It will move into its new offices at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in September of this year.
Staff numbers in the Dublin office currently total 15 but are expected to grow to more than 50 within two years. This will include people working within management and finance as well as website developers and member service agents.
“Ireland is the perfect location for our International headquarters and was chosen for a number of reasons, not least because of the great availability of talented people, but also because it is a country that has a long history of emigration and plays a significant role in the family history of people across the globe,” says Olivier van Calster, Ancestry.com’s general manager.
