tracing-irisg-family-historyJust bought a book for my Kindle Paperwhite called “Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet” by Chris Paton – for more info about this book click the image of the bookcover.

It has always been notoriously difficult to find genealogical records in Ireland especially when you have to do your research via the Internet. It is very frustrating to be constantly coming up against ‘brick-walls’ because of the lack of places to search. Hopefully I might find some new online resources to look through in the never-ending search for new info…

Here are some links to FREE Irish databases:

National Archives of Ireland – Census 1901, 1911
Ireland census records for 1901 & 1911.
