Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

McKenna, a freelance writer in Chicago whose ancestors immigrated to New York from County Clare and County Armagh in the 19th century, has written a beginner's guide to researching Irish American genealogy. Her book provides essential background on Ireland and Northern Ireland and tells how to begin research, interview relatives, and write the family history. Each chapter lists current resources and includes a list of Internet web sites. Two advanced guides for research in Ireland and Northern Ireland, respectively, are John Grenham's Tracing Your Irish Ancestors (LJ 1/93) and Kathleen Neill's How To Trace Family History in Northern Ireland (Irish Genealogical Association, 1986). A solid contribution to researching Irish genealogy in America, Ireland, and Northern Ireland, McKenna's book will be useful for students of all ages. [The numerous books in this series cover, among others, British American, Native American, African American, and Jewish American genealogy.?Ed.]?Judith P. Reid, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

"Genealogy books frequently lack the appeal necessary to make them inviting reading, but this book is a rare exception with its enticing illustrations and personal message. This volume is a must-have for any library serving youth." -- Voice of Youth Advocates
