Ancestors from Kilnaughtin/Tarbert, Co Kerry?

If you have ancestors from the north County Kerry town of Tarbert, you'll be keen to obtain a copy of 200 years of change, a 254-page book newly published by Tarbert Historical & Heritage Society.

The book commemorates two centuries of Kilnaughtin Parish Church (St Brendan's, Church of Ireland) and includes a full list of baptisms from 1793 to 1914 as well as other details that will be of much interest to those with local connections, whatever their ancestors' religion.

You can find out more on Kay Cabell's blog, My Kerry Ancestors, which reproduces part of a note from Dr Declan Downey explaining shy many non-Protestants can be found within the registers, and provides details of where/how the book may be purchased.

(Many thanks to Kay for letting me know about the book's launch.)
