Tracing Irish Roots
Irish Perspectives on UK Records
Irish Records in the UK
Pulling It All Together
This section of the website provides comprehensive information on how to research your Irish roots looking at the resources available both in Ireland and the UK. For example, it gives a description of the records held by the General Register Office in Dublin and Belfast, explains the background to the collection of the records, and provides guidelines on how to use them. Military and police records are also covered. There are tips on how to carry out your research and a wealth of information on topics such as surname variations found in the UK.
The descendants of those who left Ireland have long been interested in their Irish ancestors but it is only in the past 40 years or so that people in Ireland have begun to search out their own forebears and to develop the records that make this search possible.
