Sources for Irish Family History

A listing of books and articles on the History of Irish Families

Compiled by James G. Ryan

A5 172mm x 238mm 180pages ISBN 0-9539974-2-1

This volume contains a list of books, monographs and periodical papers dealing with specific Irish families. The references cited aqr mainly accounts of particular family lines and vary from fond and motional accounts of families and their ancestral homes to dispassionate, well-researched and fully documentd family studies and pedigrees. The greater value of the material contained in these references is to put some human dimension to the barren facts that may be obtained from the usual range of records. No church or civil record will inform us that our ancestors were wonderful singers or dancers; or of the details of their travels or their occupation; nor whether their recorded marriages were thee culmination of great romances, or of family arrangements. Such information can, however, be occasionally found in the memoirs and letters detailed in the articles and bookslisted here.
