Description
 
Another volume in the 'Irish Families' series, this illustrated, well indexed book, was created exclusively to help you find your family in County Longford, Ireland. Focusing specifically on families within the county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Longford.

The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Longford 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. Published by the Irish Genealogical Foundation, this book was originally made for members researching in Longford.

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 Longford - some family history is included - but not a large amount. For that see 'The Book of Irish Families Great and Small', the first book in the Irish Families series by O'Laughlin.

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

The most numerous families here in the 19th century were
Reilly..O'Riley..Rielly,
Farrell..Farrall..Farel,
Kiernan..McKiernan..Kearnan,
Kelly...Kelley...Kellie,
Donohoe..Donahoe..Dunahoe,
Murphy..Murphey..Morphey,
Brady..Bradie..Bradey,
Quinn...Quine..Quin,
Smith..Smythe..Smyth.
Some of the earlier families of Longford were Gaynor (Gainer);
Leavy; Tuite; Mac Gilna; Forbes; Aungier; Edgeworth;
Harman; King; and Lane (Layne, Lain).
