Description
 
This illustrated, well indexed book, was created exclusively to help you find your family in County Derry also known as County Londonderry, in Ireland. Focusing specifically on families within the county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Derry. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Derry 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), and 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 Derry.

McLaughlin, McLoughlin, Laughlin,
