Book launch: Tracing your Kildare Ancestors

The latest book from Flyleaf Press – A Guide to Tracing your Kildare Ancestors – is to be published shortly.

Written by Karel Kiely, Mario Corrigan and James Durney, all three of whom are involved in Kildare genealogy as researchers, archivists or authors, the 160-page, illustrated paperback provides a comprehensive account of the many genealogical sources available for those with ancestral connections to the county. It is filled with information on what the records contain, and how and where they can be accessed. It is well illustrated with maps of the various administrative divisions; with examples of the types of records to be found; and with other relevant material.

It also provides background on the social history of the counties and how this history has affected the keeping and survival of records. There is also a comprehensive index.

The book is the latest in a series of county guides from Flyleaf Press, which is now a part of Ancestor Network. The range includes guides for Limerick, Sligo, Galway, Dublin, Clare, Westmeath, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Roscommon, Mayo and Donegal, and they are a staple of any Irish family historian's bookshelf.
