Book Description

Dec 31 1998
This work is a singular mass of information illustrating the lineage, honours and achievements of families connected with Ireland by birth, rank, title or alliance which took the author over 50 years to compile. Many of his sources are now lost to time, but his work survives.

A body of 30.000 - 40,000 Irish, plundered of their estates left Ireland under different leaders, and entered the service of France, Spain, Austria and Venice. The 'Wild Geese' of Ireland are each documented here by name. (Every family from 70 regiments is D'Altons starting point.) For Each family D'Alton gives historical and genealogical illustrations. For Irish families he concentrates particularly on ancient locations. For families who came to Ireland from England and Scotland, he often gives the place from which they came and at what date .

D'Alton, dedicated to the ancient family history of each of the Wild Geese of Ireland, takes each family into to the 17th century confiscations and Acts of Settlements down to the 1800's as possible. The information in this work will link Irish families together worldwide back to the homeland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review Oct. 2 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
This is a very under used resource. It has the names and family history of these "wild geese" in Ireland who fought on the Irish sied in the war.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful genealogical source Sept. 17 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
This is a very useful source of genealogical information. It gives a genealogical history for the families of most of the officers involved in the Irish army of King James the Second.
