This comprehensive guide to tracing your ancestors in County Kerry describes all the various sources of information which are available for undertaking research, where they can be accessed, and how to best use them.

The people of Kerry have a rich history. Although very predominantly Gaelic, their origins include Normans, English, Danish, Vikings, French Huguenots and German Palatines. All of these have contributed to the character of twenty-first century Kerry.

Common surnames in the county include O'Sullivan, O'Shea, Sheehan, O'Dohoghue, O'Driscoll, Falvey, O'Connor, Moriarty, McCarthy, Kelleher, O'Connell, O'Mahoney, Fitzgerald, Cantillon, Stack, Hussey, Clifford and Fitzmaurice.

Kerry has experienced a high level of emigration to North America and elsewhere. Kay Caball uses all of her experience as a researcher and writer to put together this seminal guide for Kerry research.
