For those family historians with Irish ancestry, there’s a couple of new books now available from Flyleaf Press which may be of interest. They form part of the ‘Tracing your…’ series looking at specific counties in Ireland and offer excellent guidance on how best to go about finding records and generally how to discover more about your Irish ancestors.
The 2 latest books I have discovered are ‘Tracing Your Cork Ancestors’ by Tony McCarthy and Tim Cadogan and ‘Tracing Your Roscommon Ancestors’ by John Hamrock. Cork is the largest Irish county with a diverse social history and equally diverse sets of records available. Roscommon is one of the smallest Irish counties with a history based primarily around agriculture that suffered greatly in the famine.
If you need some advice and guidance on researching your Irish history for either of these counties or the other Irish counties for that matter, this series of books will definitely be of interest. They can be ordered at S&N Genealogy Supplies at http://www.genealogysupplies.com/product_search.php?search=Irish&titlebar=true
