Book Description

May 12 2012 Genealogist's Reference Shelf

This book will help all those, no matter where they live, who are searching for ancestors in Ireland. David R. Elliott has taken eight research trips to Ireland on behalf of his clients and has worked in most archival repositories in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Dr. Elliott gives clues to finding your ancestral county, then the parish and townland within the county. He explains how Irish archival centres work and describes how you can flesh out your ancestors lives and what you might find in cemeteries.

An experienced genealogist and seasoned traveller, Dr. Elliott gives practical advice on preparing for your trip with tips on travel, driving, accommodation, and meals. Ireland's unique history is outlined, as well as the impact that religion and politics have had on genealogical research. An annotated bibliography and a review of important websites round out this illustrated guide.

Product Description


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.

This a 'delicious' read as to mean: lots of great content, new research avenues and ideas, including maximizing your visit and experience while in Ireland. It's also a recent publication (2012) so information is up to date. I would highly recommend this to anyone researching their Irish ancestry.
