Irish Roots Spring issue published

The Spring issue of Irish Roots magazine is now available in the shops! It's also available in digital format on the publisher's website here.

In this month's issue there's a focus on Tracing Your County Mayo Ancestors and a feature about using Directorie to further your research. There's also an article that explores the 1830's Tithe War; this not only points you in the direction of the tithe applotment collections but also puts the historical period in context. Other features include helpful guidance to researching ancestors in Australasia and locating church records in the US.

Combining traditional genealogy with dna testing is examined in another feature, there's a handy guide to the top ten most useful websites for research, and there's also my own feature bringing you a round-up of all the latest Irish genealogy releases and developments.

On the heritage side you can also discover how New Ross is celebrating the 50th anniversary of JFK's visit to New Ross.

Another great issue.
