This review is from: A Guide to Tracing your Mayo Ancestors (Paperback)
The fact that this book is only 160 pages long, confirms the reality that unfortunately the family history material surviving for Mayo is less than for most other Irish counties. The book helpfully points you in all the right directions, but what is available is patchy and not always easily accessible. It confirms for me how difficult it is to make progress on researching relatives in County Mayo, particularly those who lived and died before civil registration commenced, and for whom I have very little basic information. This isn't, of course, the author's fault, as he certainly lists a lot of resources, some of which, for the fortunate, may be just the link they are seeking. A lot of these resources aren't online, so investigating them is going to involve a lot of time and visits to various places. Not so easy, if you don't live in Ireland. So although the book can certainly be recommended, and is probably essential if you are researching ancestors in this area, I think some people will be a little disappointed when they realise that it offers very few quick solutions. There is no doubt that because of the loss of the earlier census returns, and many Parish records (particularly in County Mayo), tracing relatives in Ireland is much more difficult than it is in England, Wales & Scotland.
