The challenge of names and places in Irish family history. — 8 Comments

  1. Thanks Stephanie, I only have 1 Irish ancestor who was born in 1820. I’m have neglected Thomas having heard so much about how difficult Irish family history research can be, however after reading your blog I’ve decided to give it a go.

  2. Thank you Stephanie, I have three Irish ancestors which, after having a hard time researching, I’m ashamed to say I put them aside. Now I’m going to give it a go also.

  3. Thankyou Stephanie. I have many Irish ancestors who I find difficult to locate. Similarly, they have what appears confusing information.

  4. I hope it is of some assistance. I wanted to draw attention to the free Irish indexes and links to some of the Church of Ireland issues.
    For family history month, SLQ, QSA and NAA are doing a ‘Find your Irish family history’ program. It is a free Zoom program.
    In a recent request for feedback from the public there was a request for Pre-Famine information. We do have the Devon Commission, an investigation into land presented right on the eve of the Famine. There were many witnesses and it went down to the local level in the interviews conducted. In some cases it can be found on the internet.

    • Thank you for letting us know that Stephanie, as many of our readers grapple with extending their Irish lines pre-registration. We shall look forward to the August presentations during family history month.

  5. Will we be advised of the Find your family history program please, and how to register and gain access to it?
