This work is the inaugural publication in a new "how-to" series. Designed to cover the basic elements of genealogical research in just four pages, the "Genealogy at a Glance" series gives you as much useful information in the space allotted as youíll probably ever need. Compiled by respected authorities, each "Genealogy at a Glance" piece is a four-page distillation of the key ingredients in a given area of genealogical research. Each can be read at a glance and used with total confidence. So what does it do? In just four pages (which are specially laminated for heavy use) it provides an overview of the basic facts you need to know in order to begin and to proceed successfully with your research. It boils the subject down to its essence and allows you to grasp the basics of research at a glance! Literally at a glance.
In this instance, building on years of experience, Irish genealogy expert Brian Mitchell tells you succinctly about the sources used in Irish research, where to find them, and how to use them.
In a few deft sentences he provides all the basic instruction you need, focusing on key record sources and materials for further reference, and finishing with a summing up of record repositories and online sources. From emigration lists and surname histories to church registers and census records--each accompanied with important background information--he very cleverly lays out the whole of Irish genealogical research, providing what is arguably the best four pages ever written on the subject.
Itís almost impossible to imagine anything more useful in your research. Carry it with you wherever you go, consult it at a glance--as frequently as need be--and use it with absolute confidence.
