Book Description

18 April 2013
Ireland has experienced considerably more tragedy when it comes to the preservation of resources for family historians than its close neighbour Britain. Many of the nation's primary records were lost during the civil war in 1922 and through other equally tragic means. But in this new book Chris Paton, the Northern-Irish-born author of the best-selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet, shows that not only has a great deal of information survived, it is also increasingly being made available online. Thanks to the pioneering efforts of the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, the National Archives of Ireland, organizations such as FindmyPast Ireland, Ancestry.co.uk and RootsIreland, and the massive volunteer genealogical community, more and more of Ireland's historical resources are accessible from afar. As well as exploring the various categories of records that the family historian can turn to, Chris Paton illustrates their use with fascinating case studies. He fully explores the online records available from both the north and the south from the earliest times to the present day. Many overseas collections are also included, and he looks at social networking in an Irish context where many exciting projects are currently underway. His book is an essential introduction and source of reference for anyone who is keen to trace their Irish roots.

The book does what it says on the cover and was in excellent condition when delivered. On following the guidelines I got through my first brick wall and promises to be a good roadmap for anyone researching family history.

NB I was also very impressed by the speedy delivery from Amazon too!

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT THAT KEEN 10 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are a first timer at Family Research this book is complicated if you do not understand how to start. It gives lots of detail and
I tried some of the sites it suggested, but you get on to them and they are mine fields. It is also so easy to get signed up for some
thing you don't want and spend lots of money on sites they say they are free - what you get in the end is a name & date of birth
nothing else so you have to spend money one way or the other i.e. getting tokens or signing up for 6 to 12 months.

I am now looking for something more simple for beginners.

I am not under the illusion that this research is easy because it is not, you must be prepared to double check everything. I am still
keen to learn.
