Roscommon is one of the smallest Irish counties and its name derives from the
Irish - Ros Coman, meaning St Coman's Wood. Its social history is mainly based
around agriculture and it was badly affected by the great famine of 1845-47,
which resulted in the death and emigration of a huge proportion of its
population. Its people were active in the Rebellion of 1798 and it was the
birthplace of Douglas Hyde, the first president of an independent Ireland.

This book sets out the range of Roscommon genealogical sources available to
the family history researcher. Covering records such as directories, parish records, census and census substitutes, newspapers, school records and much more ... it devotes a chapter to each source type
explaining what information each contains, and where the records can be accessed.
