Description
 
This illustrated, well indexed book, was created specifically to help you find your family in County Armagh in Ireland. Focusing on families within the county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Armagh. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Armagh families found in heraldic records. Included you will find a full page county map from the Atlas of Ireland, along 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), as well as 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 Armagh - some family history is included - but it is not a gigantic collection of family histories. For that see 'The Book of Irish Families Great and Small, by the same author.

'The Book of Irish Families Great and Small', gives hundreds of family histories from County Armagh and the surrounding areas. This volume "Genealogy and Family History of County Armagh" expands upon that coverage with added families.

The most numerous families here in the 19th century according to this book were:
Murphy.....Murphey..... Morphie;
Hughes.....Hewes.....Hughs;
Wilson.....Willson.....Wilsone;
Campbell.....Cambell.....Cambel;
