Flyleaf publishes Tracing your Clare Ancestors

Flyleaf Press has published the latest in its 'Tracing your Ancestors' series, this time for those with roots in County Clare.

This well-received series looks at the availability of family history records in the county and sets out where they can be accessed. Each book also looks at the history of each county, and how this has impacted the survival of record, as well as setting out the ideosyncracies of research in the area.

County Clare was badly affected by the Great Famine during which so many died or emigrated; its huge diaspora will find this book extremely useful to their genealogy research.
