The Irish Government has announced that Ancestry.com, the world’s largest family history resource has signed a lease on property at Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin from where it will run its international operations. The company is set to move into the new premises in September, having been in Dublin in temporary offices since autumn 2011and jobs numbers are expected to expand from 15 to about 50 within two years.

The jobs are said to include staff working within management and finance functions as well as website developers and member service agents.

Olivier van Calster, Ancestry.com’s vp & general manager, International comments: “We are delighted to be opening our new offices at Sir John Rogerson's Quay and are looking forward to growing our international business from Dublin. 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.”

Welcoming the announcement, Minister Richard Bruton TD, said: “Ancestry.com is a very welcome addition to Ireland’s growing cluster of online companies. Through continued implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs the Government is determined to build on this and create the jobs we need”.

Barry O’Leary, IDA Ireland CEO, said: “Ancestry.com’s decision to locate its new international operations centre in Dublin follows a strong flow of investments in recent years in the digital sector and highlights Ireland’s place on the global digital map. It is a welcome addition to the existing dynamic technology cluster in Ireland”.
