Genealogical research in Ireland has always been dependent on records that are more fragmented, localised and difficult to access that anywhere else. The internet is changing that. With online access to records making it easy for most people of Irish origin to trace their family background, there has never been a better time to research your family history.

This guide contains everything you need to know to speed up the process, making sense of the deluge of online material and guiding you towards records and methods you may not have known existed.

The fifth edition of 'Tracing Your Irish Ancestors' is greatly expanded and updated but still retains its familiar three-part structure, combining a detailed guide for beginners with thorough descriptions of all the useful sources and county-by-county reference lists. Additionally, all of the changes that have been brought about by modern technology – internet records and DNA testing, which make researching your family background easier than ever – are explained in this indispensable guide.

It is an essential part of any Irish family history project.
