Irish Genealogy Resources for Family History Research

In researching your Irish ancestors these sites may be helpful:

Family Trees on Rootsweb World Connect (free)

The Irish Times Ancestry section. This includes an online version of material in found in John Grenham’s Tracing Your Irish Ancestors, Third Edition. You can get this book through Amazon. I recommend Amazon as I have found they are so much cheaper than specialist genealogy bookstores and it is often possible to get a second hand copy. I have never had any problems with either.

Jane Lyons has a comprehensive site called From Ireland.

Tipperary Genealogy

The Index Page for the Ireland Genealogy Projects

Failte Romhat The genealogy site of John Hayes.

Connors Genealogy

Very detailed listings and descriptions of many Irish sources available at Irish by Sean Quinn at Rootsweb Freepages.

Census Finder has links to numerous good sites.

Latter Day Saints Free Record Search

The Irish Family History Foundation . Fee of 5 Euro to view a record.

Tipperary Family History Research commissioned research only.

  1. Wish I knew how to connect to my Fogarty ancestors. My father Thurman A. Fogarty was an only child who’s father left when he was a baby. He never saw his father again and no one from that side ever tried to keep in touch. My father passed a few years ago never knowing any of them. All I’ve found is his father was Arthur Fogarty and his grandfather was Herbert Fogarty. If anyone knows any connection please contact me. I am currently visiting Ireland & have not had much luck except most are from Co Tipperary. I should have mentioned I am from Northern California.

    1. Hi Mary,
      Herbert is an unusual Irish christian name so have you looked in the 1901 Census records? otherwisw you could contact Tipperary Family History Research who do paid research. Good Luck with your search Kathleen
