The Irish Family and Local History Handbook

The Irish Family and Local History Handbook

Ref: IFLHH

A popular misconception about researching Irish ancestors is that it is a fruitless exercise because so many records were destroyed in a fire in 1922.

Although many records were destroyed in 1922, since then archivists have been gathering records and there are many other records that were not kept in the records office in Dublin in 1922 that have survived.

The Handbook has a comprehensive range of articles all written with Irish research in mind covering everything from beginning your family history to areas of specific research, as well as advice on using the internet, digital technology and military sources.

The back of the book contains the Irish Genealogical Services directory covering Archives, Record Offices, Repsitories, County Genealogy Centres, Libraries, Museums, Family History Societies, Cemeteries & Crematoria and Professional Genealogists.

This book is an excellent handbook for experienced genealogists as well as beginners.

New Cousins - How to Trace Living Descendants of Your Ancestors

Ref: NCKB

By Karen Bali

Second Edition Published 2012
31 pages

This book is a guide to descendant searching that is looking for living relatives. It can be fascinating, rewarding, and potentialy life-changing. Research can lead you not do dead ancestors, but to living, breathing relatives who share your genetic heritage members of your extended family.

Instead of searching for ancestors, descendant searching involves using many of the same research methods to bring a search forward in time rather than working backwards chronologically. Working from a chosen ancestor or family, a researcher can trace living descendants from the same family, and link up to share information.

    This booklet:
  • Shows you how to get started
  • Offers tips and guidance using the major sources for family history

Tracing Your Northern Ancestors

Tracing Your Northern Ancestors

Ref: TYNA

Author: Keith Gregson
Date Published: 2007
Cover: Paperback
Size: A5
Pages: 200

  • Comprehensive introduction to researching Northern ancestors.
  • Covers Northumberland, Tyneside, Durham, Wearsde, Tees Valley and Cumbria.
  • Brings family history to life by exploring the world in which your ancestors lived.
  • Designed for researchers who are starting to investigate their family history.

The far north of England is a key site for family historians. Many researchers, seeking to trace their ancestry back through the generations, will find their trail leads to the north or through it. And yet, despite the burgeoning interest in genealogy and the importance of the region in so many life stories, no previous book has provided a guide to the documents and records that family historians can use in their search. In this accessible and informative introduction to the subject, Keith Gregson looks at the history and heritage of the region - of Northumberland, Tyneside, Durham, Wearside, Tees Valley and Cumbria - and gives a fascinating insight into the world in which our ancestors lived. He introduces the reader to the variety of records that are available for genealogical research, from legal and ecclesiastical archives, birth and death certificates to the records of local government, employers, institutions, clubs, societies and schools.

Keith Gregson writes on family history and specialises as a historian of the social and economic history of the nineteenth century, a period of agricultural and industrial revolution that transformed the lives of the people of the North. He was born of northern parents and raised from infancy in the North where he still lives and writes. He has published a number of works of regional significance including Cumbrian Songs and Ballads and Corvan - A Victorian Entertainer and His Songs.
