Description
 
County Offaly (aka Kings County), and County Leix or Laois (aka Queens County) are the subject of this illustrated, and well indexed book. Compiled to help you find your family in Kings or Queens Counties in Ireland, the book focuses specifically on families within these counties and includes an introduction to research and sources in them. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Kings and Queens families found in heraldic records. Included you will find a full page county map of each from the Atlas of Ireland, with a listing of modern parishes and old townlands, along with the address and location of records for more research.

This work includes copies of actual records (some worn, torn and faded), from the IGF Library. It also includes rough sketches of family coats of arms and notes from centuries past - seldom found elsewhere. The resources provided here will help research any family in the county, including old Irish families, and settler families from England, Scotland, Wales and the continent. This book is a hands on guide for finding your family in Kings and Queens - some family history is included - but it is not a gigantic collection of family histories.

For family histories in both Kings and Queens, 'The Book of Irish Families Great and Small" if the one to look at. This volume expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Kings and Queens.
