Some Links to Help with your Research

If you have found this website, you are probably serious about searching for your Irish ancestors and know that finding these elusive relatives requires some different and innovative strategies at times. It is also likely that you have found and used the well-known and well-advertised sites that can get you started on your family research. The Links listed on this page are not the routine links that you can find on so many websites; we don't feel the need to repeat all of that. Rather, these Links may be to sites that are a little more obscure or less well-known, but may be of some value and assistance to the serious searcher. Some of these sites we have found ourselves; others have been included because the owner contacted us to let us know what they have to offer. We have checked them all before adding them to this list, so hopefully there are no surprises. If you find a broken link, please let us know. And, if you know of a site that you think merits a listing here, send it along and we'll consider it. 

We are just starting to put this page together, so although it will always be a work in progress, this is just the beginning...
