Spring 2015 edition of Irish Roots magazine published
The Spring edition of Irish Roots Magazine has been published and delivers another crop of very helpful features for Irish family historians around the globe.

The second part of the Back To Basics series 'All you need to know to trace your Irish ancestors' should help to guide beginner and intermediate researchers, while another series – Locating Living Descendants – is sure to be a big hit with all those of us (and we are many!) who want to make contact with our lost cousins.

Sean Murphy concludes his 'Surnames of the Four Provinces' series by turning the spotlight on Ulster, and there's an expert round-up of sources available for tracing ancestors from County Kildare. The history of the Huguenots in Ireland is explored, you can find out about the burial place of St Patrick, and, from my own keyboard, you can enjoy a round-up of all the latest records and Irish genealogy developments from the last three months.

Heading overseas, this issue's Australian Connections feature looks at Bushrangers, while US Occupational sources are explored for those with Irish-American ancestors.

Add in general genealogy news and comment features, Letters to the Editor, Readers Experiences, and the always helpful Your Genealogy Questions Answered, and you have another fine issue of the magazine to read, learn from, and enjoy.

Print copies of the magazine are available in the shops or by post (click front cover image for details). Alternatively, Irish Roots is also available as a digital copy.
