Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Genealogical research is often viewed as complex and arduous. "The basic aim of this book is to overcome the perception that genealogy is only for the experts." Mitchell accomplishes his task well. This short guide explains the genealogical history of Ireland and how to find and use the sources that describe American's ancestors. Sections on administrative divisions, record offices, and heritage centers in Ireland make finding sources easy. There are illustrations of major sources and how to extract information from them. This book will be more useful to beginning hobbyists than the longer treatments by Marilyn Yurdan ( Irish Family History , Genealogical Pub., 1990), and Angus Baxter ( In Search of Your British & Irish Roots , LJ 11/15/82; Genealogical Pub., 1987. reprint). It could be improved by adding a short bibliography on Irish history and sources. Recommended for libraries serving genealogists or collecting manuals for hobbyists.
