This is the first edition of our Genealogy at a Glance: Irish Genealogy Research guide. An updated 2nd edition of this guide is now available as a four-page, laminated publication. This old edition is still available until the new edition is released in an electronic format.
Designed to cover the basic elements of genealogical research in just four pages, this guide provides an overview of the basic facts you need to know in order to begin and to proceed successfully with your Irish genealogy research. It boils the subject down to its essence and allows you to grasp the basics of research at a glance! Literally at a glance.
Building on years of experience, Irish genealogy expert Brian Mitchell tells you succinctly about the sources used in Irish research, where to find them, and how to use them. In a few deft sentences he provides all the basic instruction you need, focusing on key record sources and materials for further reference, and finishing with a summing up of record repositories and online sources. From emigration lists and surname histories to church registers and census records–each accompanied with important background information–he very cleverly lays out the whole of Irish genealogical research, providing what is arguably the best four pages ever written on the subject.
