FLL000 Tracing Your Cork AncestorsWorking in a bookshop I get excited when new books are released. Especially when nothing, or at least nothing recent has been published on that topic. Today I want to highlight a range of Irish research guides that have been published by Flyleaf Press. Their guides have become ‘standard’ research tools for those researching their Irish roots and it’s easy to see why, as they are comprehensive.

Their three new guides ‘Tracing Your Clare Ancestors’, ‘Tracing Your Sligo Ancestors’, and ‘Tracing Your Westmeath Ancestors’ complement the range of guides they have relating to researching various counties in Ireland.

Currently there are ten titles available. Each covering a different Irish county, and each written by an authority who knows what records are available, together with where to find them, and tailored to each county:
– Civil registration
– Censuses and census substitutes
– Church records
– Land records
– Wills, administrations and marriage bonds
– Newspapers
– Directories and occupational sources
– Memorial inscriptions
– Education
– Family names and histories

Together with useful information such as:
– Maps
– The administrative divisions
– The repositories and addresses

The titles that are available in this series are:
Tracing Your Clare Ancestors
Tracing Your Cork Ancestors
Tracing Your Donegal Ancestors
Tracing Your Dublin Ancestors
Tracing Your Galway Ancestors
Tracing Your Limerick Ancestors
Tracing Your Mayo Ancestors
Tracing Your Roscommon Ancestors
Tracing Your Sligo Ancestors
Tracing Your Westmeath Ancestors
