  • Absolute Gem for Irish Research

    Posted by Ross Hansen on 7th Aug 2019

    I found this guide to be so practical, I keep it beside me for reference while researching Irish ancestors. It's filled with useful articles arranged under logical chapters such as "Census Records", "Civil Registration Records" and "Land, Streets, Schools & Workhouses". Each contains descriptions of websites (mostly free) and their relevance to the chapter topic. Explanations are very clear and instructions are provided where necessary on which buttons to tick, guiding readers to the relevant parts of the sites. The authors of the articles have obviously done the hard work to make this so easy to use and have included photographs, coloured diagrams and images of web pages to aid their readers. The magazine is part of a series so I'm hoping to purchase more of these e.g. "Tracing Your Scottish Ancestors" and "Tracing Your Female Ancestors" as they become available.
