Notes This Week:
What’s happening today at the Irish Roots Cafe
1) ‘County Wexford Genealogy and Family History notes’
has just been upgraded with a full color 19th century
map of the county, which should help researchers.
2) I’ll be at the Dublin, Ohio Irish Festival shortly. It’s our
12th year or so at the genealogy tent with books, cd’s and
consultation ! We’ll be launching our genealogy CD and
several more in our new set, right at the festival !
We may even offer free DNA swabs to acquaint you with
the procedure.... Be sure and stop by the tent.
3) I am also going to try some Sean Nos singing, maybe at
the cultural tent Friday night... if not I’ll be singing at the
genealogy tent when the crowd subsides.....
Irish County Genealogy Book of the Month:
1) County Tipperary, Ireland, genealogy & family history.
Volume 25 of our Irish Families Project, and this book is
only on County Tipperary, Ireland. Here is some info
taken from the book above:
Most Numerous Tipperary Familes
The 19th century birth index finds the following families
most numerous in the county
(variant spellings after each name have been added) :
Most of the old Irish names can have the
Mac or 'O' before the name dropped or
added at will. Additionally many old Irish
names were translated or 'mistranslated'
into English from the original gaelic.
Two more basic resources for the 19th
century are the Tithe Applotment Books,
and Griffiths Survey of Ireland. They are
available at the National Library of Ireland
