WHERE TO START WITH GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH.
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!.
- Gather as many details as you can from documents you have at home such as letters, diaries, pictures etc..
- Write down the source (including the repository, person, website etc.) of each piece of information.
- Contact older family members. Once again, be sure to note when and from whom you obtained the details.
- Verify as much information as possible. Help can be obtained by employing, for a fee, a Professional Genealogist.
- Acquaint yourself with Irish geography and history.
