Description
 
Covering the county of Waterford in Ireland, this illustrated, well indexed book focuses specifically on families within the county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Waterford. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Waterford 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, as well as including 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 Waterford - some family history is included, but not a lot. For that see 'The Book of Irish Families Great and Small'.

'The Book of Irish Families Great and Small' covers the whole of Ireland, and includes hundreds of family histories from County Waterford, and the surrounding areas. "Genealogy and Family History of County Waterford" expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Waterford. In this way both books can work together as a set if desired, or they may be used independently for research.

The most numerous families here in the 19th century were: Power, Walsh, O'Brien, Murphy, Ryan, McGrath, Foley, Flynn, Morrissey, Kelly, Phelan, Sullivan, Whelan, McCarthy, Butler, and Tobin. Other noted Waterford families include Phelan (Phalen), Mc Grath, Keane (Keene), Ayleward, Wall, and Wadding. Among the major towns of Waterford are Waterford city; Dungarvan: Cappoquin; Lismore and Tramore.
