Millions of Canadians have some Irish heritage yet many have scant knowledge of the connection. This book should find a ready market as they wake up to the urge to explore their Irish roots.
“Researching Your Irish Ancestors at Home and Abroad is an excellent research tool for those searching for information on an Irish background. Dr. David R. Elliott has given researchers a well-written, readable publication which explains in detail the intricacies for finding information pertaining to Irish ancestors.”
This book is a fine example of how one should up a research plan at home, and when abroad in Ireland.
