WHERE  TO  START  WITH  GENEALOGICAL  RESEARCH
.

Dividing Line

Always start with yourself and work back or forward, as the case maybe, from the known to the unknown. It is a very good rule to employ!.
 

  1. Gather as many details as you can from documents you have at home such as letters, diaries, pictures etc..

     
  2. Write down the source (including the repository, person, website etc.) of each piece of information.

     
  3. Contact older family members. Once again, be sure to note when and from whom you obtained the details.
     
  4. Verify as much information as possible. Help can be obtained by employing, for a fee, a Professional Genealogist.

     
  5. Acquaint yourself with Irish geography and history.
