FOREWORD BY RYAN TUBRIDY 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.

Though I have been doing family history research for a few years now I found this book very good at uncovering why our irish ancesters did what they did and when,

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).

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.

I got this book out of the library and had to keep renewing it because there is so much information in it and it takes ages to plow through. I liked it so much I bought it for my brother for his birthday. Had to post it abroad and it was very heavy. But dont regret it. He thinks its good too. Not only got good info on websites etc. but is interesting to read. Going to purchase one for myself soon. Tried to order 2 at the same time but for some reason it would only accept 1.

Although at first the book seemed quite daunting (horrors of school history lessons returned)! I persevered and picked out several good links to help me further my research, which is ongoing. Haven't completely read it yet, using it more as a reference guide.
