Finding your Ancestors in Kerry

Kay Caball

227 mm x 145 mm, 160 pages, ISBN 978-1-907990-08-3.

This book is a comprehensive guide to tracing your ancestors in County Kerry. It describes all the various sources of information which are available for undertaking research, where they can be accessed and how best to use them. The people of Kerry have a rich history. Although very predominantly Gaelic, their origins include Normans, English, Danish, Vikings, French Huguenots, and German Palatines. All of these have contributed to the character of twenty-first century Kerry. Common surnames in the county include O'Sullivan, O.Shea, Sheehan, O'Dohoghue, O'Driscoll, Falvey, O'Connor, Moriarty, McCarthy, Kelleher, O'Connell, O'Mahoney, Fitzgerald, Cantillon, Stack, Hussey, Clifford and Fitzmaurice. Kerry has experienced a high level of emigration to North America and elsewhere. Kay Caball uses all of her experience  as a researcher and writer to put together this seminal guide for Kerry Research.
