Tracing your Irish family history on the Internet : a guide for family historians/ Chris Paton

This is one the latest titles the State Library has received from Pen & Sword Books. Chris Paton is a professional genealogist, author, blogger and presenter from Scotland who was recently a guest speaker at the Unlock the Past “Downunder Roadshow” at Parramatta.

Chris has comprehensively listed the best online resources for finding that sometimes elusive Irish Ancestor. The book is easy to use, being divided into chapters such as gateway sites, vital records, census and land, occupations, records by province and also records to help you to discover what happened to your Irish ancestor after they emigrated.
