Tracing Your Irish Roots
Ancestor-hunting is an increasingly popular pastime. This is particularly true for people with an Irish backround. After all, to the Celtic mind, genealogy has always been important. The heads of ancient Irish families enjoyed hearing their ancestors listed far back into times of legend, to Conn of the Hundred Battles, or to Queen Mebd herself. Indeed more than one, in bygone days, were proud to enumerate their antecedents all the way back to Noah, or even Adam. The great emigration of the 19th and 20th centuries has left many people, several generations away from the original emigrants, keen to find out about their Irish family roots.
In this detailed and practical handbook, you will find the means of locating your own Irish roots, and the satisfaction of tracing your own links with a society which is one of the oldest and most enduring of the world's communities.
