Description
 
Created exclusively to help you find your family in County Kilkenny in Ireland. This book focuses on families within the county, and includes an introduction to research and sources in Kilkenny. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Kilkenny 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 Kilkenny - 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' written by the same author.

That book gives hundreds of family histories from County Kilkenny, and the surrounding areas. "Genealogy and Family History of County Kilkenny" expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Kilkenny. In this way both books work together as a set if desired, or they may be used independently for research.

The most numerous families in Kilkenny in the 19th century were:
Brennan...Brenan...Brennon
Walsh..Welsh...Welch
Murphy...Murphey...Morphy
Ryan..Riane...Ryane
Carroll...Carrol...O'Carroll
Byrne...Burn...Beirne
Butler...Buttler...Butteler
Maher...Mahair
Dunne...Donne...Dunn
Phelan...Phalen...Phalan
Kelly...Kelley...Kellie
Neill...Neale...Neal
Power...Powers...Powre
Purcell...Purcel...Pursell
Brien...Brian...Bryan
Shea...Shee...Shay
Delany...Delaney...Delauney
Dowling...Dooling...Dowlin
