In comparison with most other Irish counties, Mayo has fewer records of value to family historians. This makes it important to use the existing records to their best advantage.

Mayo families are a mixture of native Gaelic families who migrated from Ulster in the 18th century, and of English and Scots-Irish settlers who came to Mayo from the 17th century onward. However, Mayo experienced a high level of emigration to North America, Scotland and elsewhere in Britain. 

This extensively revised and updated edition of the popular book, is a 'must' for every researcher with links to county Mayo. This new edition is filled with information on what the records contain, as well as how and where they can be accessed.  It includes guidance on researching in Irish archives and as information on the many online sources now available.  It is well illustrated with maps and with examples of the types of records to be found; and with other relevant background material.  It also provides an understanding of the social history of Mayo and how this history has affected the keeping and survival of records. There is also a comprehensive index.
