Donegal families are an interesting mix of native Irish families and of Scots-Irish who came to the county from the 17th century. It is also one of the counties that experienced a high level of emigration to North America, as well as Scotland and North of England.

This updated edition sets out the range of records available for the county, and it devotes a chapter to each source type explaining what information each contains, where each record can be accessed, and how they can be used to best effect in tracing Donegal families.

It is fully and comprehensively indexed, and contains illustrations of the types of records likely to be found.

Common names in the county include: O'Neill, O'Donnell, Bonner, Barr, Bradley, Duffy, Friel, Gormley, O'Kane, Gallagher, Harkin, McBride, McCafferty, McDaid, Patton, Morrissey, Ward, and Sweeney.
