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

'The Book of Irish Families Great and Small, gives hundreds of family histories from County Donegal, and the surrounding areas. ' Genealogy and Family History from County Donegal' expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Donegal. 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 in Donegal in the 19th century were:
Gallagher.....Gallaher.....Galagher
Doherty.....Dougherty.....Daugherty
Boyle.....Boyl.....Boyal
O'Donnell.....Donnell.....O'Donel
McLaughlin.....McLoughlin.....Laughlin
Sweeney.....Sweaney.....Sweeny.....McSweaney
Ward.....Macanward....MacWard
Kelly.....Kelley.....Kellie
McGinley.....McKinley.....MacKinly
McFadden.....MacFaden.....McFaden
