The authoritative and comprehensive guide to tracing your Irish ancestry

There's never been a better time to trace your Irish family history. Vast internet resources and DNA testing, as well as access to censuses, religious records and other archive material make this process easier than ever.

Anthony Adolph gives you a wide range of tools and information to discover your Irish ancestry. The text is packed with weblinks to enable you to search the great number of records now available online, as well as providing contact information on other sources, such as archives and libraries. He explains how to trace family in Ireland, starting from various countries around the world (including Ireland itself of course), as well as looking at surnames, heraldry, families of non-Irish origin, and poignant stories of migration from Ireland. By reading this book you'll also be drawn into the lives your ancestors led, through the examples, compelling stories and fascinating social history which are interwoven within the text.

This is the complete resource for discovering your Irish family history, and as a result, learning more about who you are and where you come from.

This book is a fantastic aid to anyone researching their Irish family history. It is beautifully illustrated with hundreds of photos and would make a wonderful Christmas present. I have been researching my Irish family tree for years and this is by far the best book I have seen. There is lots of information about how to find records in your own country - and then it explains what can be found in Ireland and how to get it (with lots available on the internet).
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of useful internet resources 19 Oct 2008
This is a very useful and up-to-date guide to researching Irish family history. Although I have a number of older and much larger standard works on Irish genealogy, I bought this book as soon as I saw it in a bookstore because of the wealth of internet resources it offers for research without leaving home. It is very useful for both beginning and advanced family historians/genealogists.
