This December issue (No. 19) includes genealogical resources at the Armagh Public Library, resources at the Cardinal Tomas O’Flaich Memorial Library & Archive in Armagh, President Reagan’s connection to the Morpeth Roll (a primary resource that details Ireland’s inhabitants during the 1840s), Irish settlers in Colonial Tasmania, “The Nuns Register” project, surnames of Armagh, McKee-Warnock research in Armagh, and so much more, including events, seminars, courses, classifieds and publications.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, this informative publication is sure to be enjoyed by all — whether or not one has Irish ancestry.

Book on Irish research

It’s been 21 years since John Grenham’s book “Tracing Your Irish Ancestors,” was first published. Now in its fourth edition, it continues to be the most all-inclusive and reliable book on researching Irish genealogy. The most significant change from previous editions is the book’s coverage of the Internet and its online resources. The book’s format is similar to previous editions by detailing the steps for a successful research process, as well as providing essential details on resource materials for immediate — and future — reference.

“Tracing Your Irish Ancestors, 4th Edition” is a 608-page, softcover book, ISBN 9780806318974, that can be ordered as Item No. 2386 from Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 3600 Clipper Mill Road, Suite 260, Baltimore, MD 21211 at $37.95 plus $5.50 for postage and handling. VISA and MasterCard orders may be placed toll-free at (800) 296-6687 or online at the publisher’s website at http://www.genealogical.com.

Grenham has written many books and articles on Irish genealogy, was the first genealogist-in-residence of the Dublin City Library and Archives, and is a Fellow of both the Irish Genealogical Research Society and the Genealogical Society of Ireland.
