I recently wrote about a new hotel genealogy concierge service for visitors to Scotland. You can read that article at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2007/05/hotel_genealogy.html. The idea seems to be catching on: now a hotel in Ireland is offering a similar service.
Dublin's Shelbourne hotel has appointed a genealogy butler in a bid to lure high-spending American guests. The genealogist will offer guests one-hour advisory sessions and help them to draw up practical research plans. Those who can't wait to get started on the historical trail can also e-mail their family details before they arrive to give the genealogist a head-start.
I am not certain of the difference between a "genealogy concierge" and a "genealogy butler." However, I suspect that both services will encourage genealogists to stay in the hotels.
