For the period of greatest interest to family history researchers, the late eighteenth century and early to middle nineteenth centuries, Irish family records are sparse. During this period, most of the Irish population (and particularly those who emigrated) lived as small tenant farmers or labourers; these activities required few written records. Even such events as births and marriages were not generally recorded by the state until after 1864 and, for the majority of people, were not recorded by their church until after 1800. In light of this dearth of records, every source of information can be valuable.

"Irish Records: Sources for Local and Family History" is designed to facilitate Irish family history research by providing a comprehensive listing of the record sources available for each county in Ireland. Indeed, there are records which can answer vital questions about Irish records: Where did they live? Who were their relatives? What were their occupations? Such sources as civil registers, censuses, land records, and church records are available to those who know where they can be found.

In this revised edition, the author has included many news sources. In particular, the sections for each county on "Census and Census Substitutes", "Miscellaneous Sources" and "Research Services" have been expanded. The details of Presbyterian, Church of Ireland, and Catholic records have also been extensively amended. This new edition also lists all of the heritage centres which provide search services, and it specifically indicates which parish registers, gravestone inscriptions and other sources have been indexed by each. The growth of these centres is the most important development in Irish family history research in the last ten years, and this book shows how this new resource can be used to the greatest effect.
