Irish Family Histories

£10.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This book will be of interest to all people of Irish descent as well as those interested in Irish history. By organizing over 200 names into 80 groups under one main modern spelling, Ida Grehan both consolidates and expands on the volumes of materials produced by the Chief Herald of the Genealogical Office in Ireland, Edward MacLysaght.
All the known spellings, past and current, are presented for each group, followed by in-depth material concerning
each name's origin, geographical distribution, and information on emigration to America and elsewhere. A kaleidoscope of notable figures having each surname is then documented, from the earliest records to the present. With over two hundred illustrations and photographs from sources such as the Trinity College and national libraries, this is a picturesque and informative voyage through Ireland's long history.
Also included is information on how to trace ancestors in Ireland, a short history and chronology of Ireland, and explanation of Irish heraldry and a comprehensive bibliography and surname variations index.

Minor creasing to front and rear covers, minor shelfwear to edges but internally unmarked. Overall condition is very good.
