Ancestors from Cork? Free genealogy guide launched
The Local Studies team of Cork County Libraries has published a 32-page booklet to help beginners explore their ancestral heritage in the county.

The guide, Walking in the Footsteps of Your Ancestors, is filled with carefully focussed information about local genealogical record collections and provides tips and direction for the budding family historian genealogist. It's well presented, too, with images of birth certificates and census returns and maps and so on, and comes together in an attractive and neat package.

It's free, and is available in hard copy from all County Cork branch libraries. Alternatively, it can be viewed online or downloaded as a pdf from the County Cork Libraries Local Studies page.
