Some Anglicised Surnames in Ireland
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (64 pages)
Author: P. Giolla-Domhnaigh
This 64 page book, was originally published 1923. The primary purpose of this work is to provide an alphabetical guide to English names used in Ireland which have been altered or anglicised from their Gaelic original. For example, Adams is originally from Mac Adaim, who are described as being a branch from the MacGregors of southwestern Scotland. Each of these entries, therefore, attempts to track the original name back to either its Irish or its Scottish origins.
This would be a very useful reference if you are working on your Scots-Irish genealogy.
This CD consists of scans of the original book, which can be browsed, enlarged and printed if required. Please note: it is not searchable.
