An Irish genealogy treasure trove! This guide will help you through any Irish genealogy stumbling block. org Irish census records began in 1821, but most were lost when the Public Record Office was destroyed.

One of the greatest frustrations for generations of genealogical researchers has been that reliable guidance on sources for perhaps the most critical period in the establishment of their family’s links with Ulster, the period up to 1800, has proved to be so elusive. Not any more. This book can claim to be the first comprehensive guide for family historians searching for ancestors in 17th- and 18th-century Ulster. Whether their ancestors are of English, Scottish or Gaelic Irish origin, it will be of enormous value to anyone wishing to conduct research in Ulster prior to 1800. A comprehensive range of sources from the period 1600-1800 are identified and explained in very clear terms. Information on the whereabouts of these records and how they may be accessed is also provided. Equally important, there is guidance on how effectively they might be used. The appendices to the book include a full listing of pre-1800 church records for Ulster; a detailed description of nearly 250 collections of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century estate papers; and a summary breakdown of the sources available from this period for each parish in Ulster. William Roulston is Research Officer with the Ulster Historical Foundation.

I received my book that I ordered on researching Scots-Irish ancestors very quickly. I was so pleased when I read it. It contained a good introduction to the period of settlement of the Scots and English in Ireland and a complete explanation of the records available and where they are. It is an invaluable aid to doing research on my ancestors in a period of few, fragmentary or scattered records and in an organization of counties, parishes etc with which I was unfamiliar. It gives alternatives for gaining information and a good background to the historical times involved. It is an invaluable aid to research during this period. Many thanks to Amazon for carrying this volume. Marilyn

Borrowed this book from Mid-Continent Library in Independence, Mo. and I find it has interesting and understandable reading for a beginner, to person working 50 years in family history.
