Description
 
This illustrated, well indexed book, was created exclusively to help you find your family in County Monaghan, Ireland. Focusing specifically on families within the county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Monaghan. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Monaghan 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), as well as including 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 Monaghan - some family history is included - but not a large collection of family histories, for that see 'The Book of Irish Families Great and Small'.

That book gives family histories from all over Ireland including hundreds from County Monaghan, and the surrounding areas. "Genealogy and Family History of County Monaghan" expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Monaghan. In this way both books work together, but can be used independently.

The most numerous families here in the 19th century were:
Duffy..Duffey..Duffie;
Connolly..Connelly..Conolly;
McMahon..MacMahon..McMahone;
McKenna..MacKena..McKinna;
Hughes..Hugh..Hughs;
Murphy..Murphey..Morphy;
McCabe..McAbe..Macabe;
Martin..Martyn..Martyne..Gilmartin;
Smith..Smythe..Smyth;
Kelly..Kiley..Keily;
Quinn..Quin..Quinne;
Maguire..McGwire..McGuire;
Murray..Murry..Morray;
Woods..Wood..Wode

Some of the old Irish families of Monaghan were : O'Byrne; Boylan; McWard; Treanor; MacArdle- MacArdell; MacGilmartin; Callan; McNany-McNeny; Mc Gowan (Smith); Finnegan; Cassidy; McPhillip also changed to Phillips. Settler names included Davidson; Stewart; Buchanan; MacKenzie; Cameron; Walker; Patterson; Sinclair; and McCutcheon.
