Irish Roots magazine's Autumn edition published

Inside this issue are several in-depth guides guaranteed to help researchers. They explore resources for Derry ancestors, the much underused Enhanced British Parliamentary Papers on Ireland (EPPI), Irish Methodists and Irish Soldiers in Australia.

You'll also find advice on interpreting results from the most common DNA test (autosomal DNA/atDNA), an insight into the historical development of Derry's Top 300 Surnames, an overview of Irish place names and families from Leinster, and my own review of up-to-the-minute news about record releases and other developments in the world of Irish family history.

There's also an interesting feature about linen and lace production in Ireland during the 19th century, latest news from the island's genealogical societies and groups, upcoming events, readers' genealogical questions answered, and much more.

Irish Roots magazine is available in both paper and digital format. You can find out more details at
