Irish Ancestors is the handy guide to tracing your family roots. Not only that, it is written by the leading authority and most respected author in the field, John Grenham. As the author of the best-selling and authoritative Tracing Your Irish Ancestors, Grenham has a reputation second to none. This little book is a quick one-stop shop for those who want the essential information on tracing their family trees, but don't want too much detail. It covers the basics: where to start; the major sources; how to examine census records; the records of the different churches; what you can do on-line; and a guide to public sources such as the registry of deeds and the genealogical office. This will be the perfect complement to John Grenham's bigger book, now long established as the definitive guide to Irish genealogy.
