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.

Format: Paperback
In his Pocket Guide To Irish Genealogy, Brian Mitchell skillfully blends case studies, maps, charts, and his own mastery of the subject to convey the basics of Irish genealogical research -- all in less than sixty pages. Following introductory chapters on the background to research on the American side, Mitchell describes the nature and uses of all significant record sources in Ireland including, but not limited to: civil and parish registers, gravestone inscriptions, wills, the Griffith's Valuation, Tithe Books, the 1901 and 1911 censuses, newspapers, hearth money rolls, the registry of deeds, estate records, and ordnance survey memoirs. Mitchell also explains the differences between the various administrative divisions of Ireland. Pocket Guide To Irish Genealogy concludes with lists of all major Irish record offices and heritage centers, providing addresses and phone numbers, hours of operation, contact persons, and major record holdings. Pocket Guide To Irish Genealogy is an invaluable roadmap to genealogical research in Ireland and ideally suited for those new to this branch of genealogical research.

Format: Paperback
Now in an updated second edition, genealogist Brian Mitchell's Pocket Guide To Irish Genealogy is a slim yet information-packed volume of information on reference sources to tracing ancestry in Ireland, including the 1901 and 1911 census to school registers, registry of deeds, estate records and much more. Of special note is the section dealing with Irish Genealogy and the Internet, and its guide to some of the most useful sites. A highly recommended, "user friendly" primer for beginning genealogists who wish to trace Irish ancestry, Brian Mitchell's Pocket Guide To Irish Genealogy also has much to commend it to experienced genealogists in need of a refresher for work with Irish genealogical research assignments.
