Published in 1931 and written by Jeremiah King who died before the book was published, this is a wonderful source for anyone researching local or family history in Kerry. In short this is an alphabetical listing of places and family names for the county. Spread over 350 pages this is a thorough and comprehensive publication. King took copious notes from several sources, including census records, Griffith's Valuation, the Tithe Applotment books, various histories of the county, local lore and oral history.
The book (now on CD) is organised alphabetically with an entry for every townland name (giving acreage and alternate names), other placenames, surnames (often with a full pedigree for certain families), individuals, topics, etc. For each entry there is extensive information provided.
It is an essential resource for those studying Kerry local and family history, and we hope this republication will bring back to light a sadly forgotten mine of useful information.
