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 Published by the Irish Genealogical Foundation, this book was originally made for members researching in Mayo.

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 Mayo - some family history is included - but it is not a gigantic collection of family histories.

'The Book of Irish Families Great and Small', gives hundreds of family histories from County Mayo, and the surrounding areas. This volume expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Mayo. (In this way both books can work together as a set if desired, or they may be used independently for research).

The following families are given with family history and/or family tree notes from the works of John O'Hart :
Crean of Mayo and Sligo;
MacDonnell of Mayo;
MacHale of Tubbernavine
O'Donel (O'Donnell) of Oldcastle and Castlebar;
O'Malley of Murrisk and Burrishoole;
O'Neill of Mayo and Leitrim;
Bourke, Lord Marquis Mayo and other branches;
Gibbons of Erris;
Kane of Mayo;
Jordan (De Exeter):
and the Moore Family of Ballina.

The Source section gives you the address and location of records for more research in Ireland. Includes local sources in the county itself. Many families are noted and pinpointed as to location ...
