Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Anyone who has had even a brush with Irish genealogical research knows of the difficulties in determining exactly where his or her ancestors lived in the old country. Add to that the challenge of identifying the many civil and ecclesiastical divisions that hold records for the area where the ancestors resided, and soon the head spins with parish names and boundary lines. Books such as John Grenham's Tracing Your Irish Ancestors (LJ 5/15/00. 2d ed.) and James G. Ryan's Irish Records (Ancestry, 1997) aptly define and detail the types of records available from the various divisions and offer some civil and church parish maps. Mitchell, the author of numerous Irish genealogy books, including Pocket Guide to Irish Genealogy, complements these books by providing four or five different boundary maps for each county of Ireland. In fact, the author states in his introduction that for the most thorough description of geographical boundaries the book should be used in conjunction with the General Alphabetical Index to the Townlands and Towns, Parishes and Baronies of Ireland (Genealogical, 2000. rev. ed.). Where the first edition of Mitchell's book (1986) provided maps of civil/Church of England parishes, baronies, and Poor Law Unions, the new edition includes maps of Roman Catholic parishes and Presbyterian congregations as they were by the mid-1800s. In addition, general maps highlight the counties and provincial boundaries, dioceses and ecclesiastical provincial boundaries, and probate districts. Readers can move back and forth among the maps for each county to see the boundaries and names of the administrative divisions and how the various divisions overlapped. This provides a more complete vision of what entities had jurisdiction over the areas where their ancestors lived, giving readers a much better idea of where to look for genealogical records. Highly recommended for public and genealogy library collections. Elaine M. Kuhn, Allen Cty. P.L., Ft. Wayne, IN

Now in an updated second edition, genealogy research expert Brian Mitchell's A New Genealogical Atlas Of Ireland is a very straightforward, accessible reference, presenting maps of each Irish county. Each county has five maps: one depicting the Church of Ireland parishes, one showing the baronies and Church of Ireland dioceses, one of the poor law unions and parishes included within probate districts, one of Roman Catholic parishes and dioceses, and a fifth set of maps for the nine counties of Northern Ireland shows Presbyterian congregations. Since civil registration for everyone in Ireland didn't begin until 1864, A New Genealogical Atlas Of Ireland is an extremely useful reference for tracing ancestors who lived prior to 1864. An invaluable contribution to genealogical reference and resource materials.

This book is just what it is called: an atlas. It does not give advice or information about irish history, genealogy, or anything of the sort (which is what I had mistakenly hoped for). It is a very, very detailed atlas of the counties, parishes, and every other conceivable subdivision of the land of Ireland over the last 200 years. It could be a valuable resource for anyone who has their genealogical research within Ireland already. If you are like me, and have traced the family to the boat ride but no further, this will not help you quite yet.

Thank you still to the author for the extensive research that must have gone into this!

Brought this for my wife to trace her ancestry by county in Ireland. However, there is no index and few cross references, so before buying this you'll have to research where to look...which, it seems, could generate all the answers without buying the book. We returned it.

I'm not sure about the other county maps, but the maps for County Mayo contain at least one error - #27 is indicated twice on the map and #28 not indicated at all. I will need to reference another map to clarify. Kind of looses the efficacy of using the book as a resource. As I am only interested in a specific area of County Mayo, I am unable to determine if this is the only error. I was going to email the author but there is no information of how to do so. I hope that Amazon is able to contact him.

If you have research to do about Irish genealogy then you need this book to locate parish places in order to locate the proper records. I wish I had had this 20 years ago, it would have saved a lot of time.
