A third addition of Tracing Your Donegal Ancestors has been published by Flyleaf Press. The book, by Helen Meehan and Godfrey Duffy, sets out the records available for Donegal, where they can be accessed, and how they can be used to best effect in tracing families from this county – a notorious blackspot for genealogists.
It covers civil registration, census and census substitutes, directories, newspapers, land and estate records, wills and gravestone inscriptions, as well as church, education and emigration records. It also has details of surname and family histories and an extensive bibliography.
The first edition of the book was published in 1995; the second in 2008. This 2015 edition has been fully updated and has 161 pages with black and white illustrations.
