From the Publisher

One of the historic volumes from the 32 book set on Irish Families from the I. G. F. and the Journal of Irish Families. This is the story and history of families in Co. Cork.

Ancient Cork families are included. Rare families found in Cork are given in this historic work too, some are found only once in the Co. Cork archives here. Settler families from England, Scotland and the continent who subsequently arrive in Co. Clare are included.

When needed, sources are given for further research on your family. Family castles, dates of occupation and locations are given. Ordinary Cork people, from the 17th to the 19th century are included as well.

This book greatly expands upon the families given in the first volume to the set, The Book of Irish Families, great & small. Many more Cork families are given here, and additional information can be found on families included in the first volume to the series.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Groovy Grandma on June 25, 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book arrived in good time and was well packaged. It was quite informative but because the subject matter was so broad I didn't feel it concentrated enough on elaborating on the names listed. The writer resorted to listing the families with too brief a background. I have found a better book for me, personally, since travelling to Cork in Southern Ireland. It was far too expensive for the small amount of information the book contained.

This is the best single book for history of my family name. I even found out that people with my surname inhabited a castle in Ireland!
