The Irish Family and Local History Handbook

The Irish Family and Local History Handbook


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.
