Description
 
Illustrated, well indexed, this book was created exclusively to help you find your family in County Galway, Ireland. Focusing specifically on families within the county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Galway. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Galway 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), 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 Galway- 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', compiled by the same author.

That book gives hundreds of family histories from County Galway, and the surrounding areas. This volume expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Galway. So in this way both books can work together as a set if desired, or they may be used independently for research. Another book, "Families of County Galway, Ireland" contains family history on each individual family in Galway.

The most numerous families in Galway in the 19th century were:
Kelly.....Kelley.....Kellie
Burke.....Bourke.....Burk
Conneely.....Connelly.....Connolly
Joyce.....Joys.....Joyse
McDonagh.....MacDonaugh.....McDonough
