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

That book gives hundreds of family histories from County Roscommon, and the surrounding areas - as well as families for the rest of the country. "Genealogy and Family History of County Roscommon" expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Roscommon, so in this way both books work together, but can be used independently for research.

Among the most numerous families here in the 19th century were:
MacDermott,
Kelly,
O'Connor (Conner),
Beirne,
Regan (Reagan),
Flannigan (Flanigan),
Connor,
McDonagh (MacDonough),
Quinn (Quin),
Murray,
Brennan,
Higgins,
Towey (Tuohey),
Kenny and
Flynn (Flinn)..

Among the many other noted families of Roscommon were Hayes (Hays), McAneeny (MacAniny), Mc Dockery, Gormley (Gormly) and Duignan. The major towns of Roscommon included Strokestown, Boyle, and Castlerea.
