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 Published by the Irish Genealogical Foundation, this book was originally made for members researching in Tyrone.

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 Tyrone - 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 Tyrone, and the surrounding areas. "Genealogy and Family History of County Tyrone" expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Tyrone.

Among the most numerous families here in the 19th century were:
Quinn.....Quine.....Quinne
Mullan.....Mullen.....Mullens
Kelly.....Kelley.....Kellie
Donnelly.....Donnelley.....Donelly
Gallagher.....Gallaher.....Galagher
McKenna.....MacKenna.....McKena
Campbell.....Cambell.....Camble
Hughes.....Hughs
Wilson.....Willson.....Wilsone
McLaughlin.....McLoughlin.....Laughlin
O'Neill.....Neale.....Neill
Doherty.....Dougherty.....Daugherty
