A new popular historical activity is looking up your own family’s roots. It used to be done by contacting the local priest or record keeper of an area you had researched in order to find out where your family was from. Happily now there is a resource we can recommend, which is IrishGeneology.ie. It is a helpful resource that has digitized many local records into one easy to search database. We hope this helps with your journey to find out how far back your family tree goes in the local area. If you find anything of note and wish to share it with us, please contact us.
