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

This book sets out the records available to the family history researcher, detailing each source, its location and reference.
