In a few weeks, a few months, next year, sometime-- you are going on a genealogical research trip to Ireland. Success will depend upon having names to work with and on some knowledge of place and time; progress will be better if some things are done before departure. How do you prepare, and do your best to insure research time is well spent? Start with this guide. The authors have considerable experience in helping genealogists begin their research in North America and in guiding them through the steps they must take in Ireland.
The book introduces researchers to Irish boundaries, Irish records and Irish repositories. There are suggestions for what to do at home, outlines of the contents and services of archives and libraires in Ireland, as well as some travel advice. The bibliography lists those how-to books and reference works which will build understanding and even speed the process. As well as being full of useful information, this handy guide is easy to take along. Don't leave home without it!
