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

That book gives hundreds of family histories from County Kerry, and the surrounding areas. "Genealogy and Family History Notes of County Kerry" expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Kerry.

The most numerous families in Kerry in the 19th century were:
Sullivan.....Soolivan.....Sulivan
Connor.....Conner.....O'Connor
Shea....O'Shea....Shee
Murphy.....Murphey....Morphey
McCarthy.....MacArthy.....MacArty
