John Grenham's "Tracing Your Irish Ancestors" is often called the 'bible' for anyone researching their Irish roots. Now in its 5th edition (published by Gill Books in April 2019), it is available through local bookstores and on Amazon.
Per Amazon, "The fifth edition of "Tracing Your Irish Ancestors" retains its familiar three-part structure, combining a detailed guide for beginners with thorough descriptions of all the useful sources and county-by-county reference lists. Additionally, all the changes that have been brought about by modern technology - internet records and DNA testing, which make research your family background easier than ever - are explained in this indispensable guide." If your schedule permits, you NEED to attend this class!
