Description
 
This small booklet was written as course notes for lectures that Graham Jaunay (a South Australian professional genealogist) gives, and  is designed to aid the researcher based in Australia to learn how to access records in Ireland. The book examines the specific issues researchers may encounter when researching in Ireland and advises what the most useful records are, where they are located, their coverage, and any issues relating to them.

This is a useful book to give an overview of what's involved when researching Irish records from a distance.
