'Resource County Leitrim' is a publication which brings together useful and hard-to-find material into the one easy-to-use CD.
The CD provides maps and information to help researchers navigate the complex system of townlands and parishes in their search for their ancestors. The comprehensive databases are designed to help individuals, libraries and family history groups to find the information they need from a single source, without needing to go on the internet.
The author said his wife's ancestors left few records, making the search for infromation frustrating at times in a quest involving years of work, four visits to Ireland, letters published in the newspapers and help from other researchers around the world. 'In the process I have unearthed and collated background information useful which may help other people. I hope the information presented on this CD will save other people from re-inventing the wheel'.
The 'Resource County Leitrim' CD includes 60 files and 90 maps, with more than 1100 pages of information including:
- a townland index with 23 entries for all 1540 townlands in Co. Leitrim
- location of churches and graveyards
- Barony, Poor Law Union and Registrars' Districts maps
- maps showing the location of 24 Catholic parishes and 18 Civil parishes including the location of townlands within them
- LDS Family History Library microfilm numbers

and so much more...
