The firm is currently fitting out its new headquarters over two floors at the former DDDA offices at Sir John Rogerson's Quay, where the vast bulk of the staff are to be located.
However, the company is remaining tightlipped about its Irish plans, with executive director of finance John Slyne stating that the company was "not yet ready" to reveal the extent of its new operations here.
"We are thrilled to be bringing ancestry.com to Ireland, an obvious place of importance for those tracing their ancestors. We will be making a full announcement of the total worth of this investment and further details about our plans in the months ahead."
(With thanks to the heads up from Eileen Munnelly @Irish Lives from Irish Lives Remembered in Dundalk)
