About Distant Kin

Distant Kin is an online project run by Niall McMahon. It documents my genealogical pursuits and will hopefully one day be the starting point for offering professional genealogy services to the public.

Although it’s becoming more popular by the day, genealogy is something that is predominately associated with the older generation, but as a twenty-something with a broad interest in the subject, I am hoping to break that stereotype and get other younger people involved.

A web developer by day, over the last few years researching one’s ancestry has grown from a passing hobby to a serious part of my life.
