Irish Family Research – Online Workbook (FREE)

Irish Family Research – Online Workbook (FREE)

Irish genealogy research resources have exploded on the scene in the last few years.

Recently, the National Archives of Ireland produced a website/workbook to assist in your discovery of your Irish Ancestry.

Context on records creation and whether extant or not, as well as alternatives when records don’t survive, is so critical to successful research. 


There was a revolution in Ireland 100 years ago in 1916, but there has been another revolution over the past 20 years in family research…

It has never been so easy to find your ancestors, because so many records containing their details have been put online. This website will guide you through the free online resources that now exist to help you with the exciting search for your forebears, with a workbook, detailed guides to the different kinds of records, case histories and targeted tasks, which are fun as well as helpful.

You can access the modules one at a time or (at the bottom of the page) access the entire course as a PDF file (hyperlinks included to useful and FREE websites).  Don’t have the time or interest (it is NOT a time-consuming course; the modules are informative, straightforward, and not very long), you can check out the listed resources here


Which module proved most helpful to you?


What are your favorite Irish research resources?
