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

That book gives hundreds of family histories from County Tipperary, and the surrounding areas. "Genealogy and Family History of County Tipperary' expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Tipperary.

The most numerous families in the 19th century here were Ryan, Maher, O'Brien, Kennedy, Hogan, Gleeson, Hayes, Dwyer, McGrath, Walsh, Kelly and Loner. Also found in Tipperary are the Fogartys, Moloneys, Ryans (Mulryan), Gleason, Prendergast, Purcell, St. John, Grace, and Purcell.
