Inside are the usual mix of features covering personal family histories, history, photo analysis and details of resources. This month's County Focus is Kildare, which examines the surnames of the county and looks at the resources of RootsIreland and the Collections & Research Services Department of Kildare Library. The Library's Executive Librarian also has some practical hints and advice for genealogy research.

Other features include the story of a bandmaster born on the Cooley peninsula who went on to became a household name in America, a look at the value of two of Trinity College's lesser known resources, news of the Kerry Genealogy Roadshow, a feature following the trail that uncovered the roots of an American actress called Rosie O'Donnell, and another examining the connections of the Dukes of Leinster to Carton House.

There's plenty more. Just download and start reading!
