This would be a good beginning guide for those doing research on Irish ancestors who immigrated to the US in the later part of the 19th century. For someone like myself whose ancestors came over in the late 18th century or earlier there was little helpful information. Since there is nothing to indicate this in the title or description, I gave it only 4 stars. For others it may be quite helpful.
