This book introduces researchers to the treasure of printed and manuscript resources available in Irish libraries, archives,and genealogical centers. Irish and non-Irish researchers alike will find it of inestimable value for their research anywhere in Ireland.
Essential information on operating hours, contact information, access and service information, descriptions, and the location of these repositories will prove to be immensely practical. There are lists of publications, a detailed glossary and bibliography, and an extensive index. Of special interest are the vital reference details for each parish in Ireland for the crucially important tithe and valuation records from c. 1830 in the record offices in Belfast and Dublin.
The guide also provides information of practical benefit to many other interested parties, including holidaymakers interested in learning about local resources available to them during their stay in Ireland.
