From the Publisher
This is the 2nd book in our 32 volume 'Irish Families' series. It focuses only on families found in County Kerry and includes families of all religions and backgrounds, including old Irish families and settler families. It follows the master volume to the set, 'The Book of Irish Families, great & small" which contains information on families from all of Ireland.
An outline of the history of the county as it relates to Irish families, and to Irish research, is included, along with an exhaustive history of thousands of Kerry families.
From the Author
Co. Kerry was chosen as the first volume to follow 'The Book of Irish Families, Great and Small' in part due to my own ancestors who were among the 'O'Donoghues of the Glen'. I have made good use of the IGF library, and have included many references from the work of Jeremiah King, noted Kerry historian.
