How to Discover Your Irish Ancestry
Many people believe that researching Irish ancestors is impossible because of the destruction of the Public Record Office in 1922. While many records were destroyed, other sources, such as deeds and Catholic Church records, were never located in the PRO and still exist. A lot of genealogical material has come online in recent years, and the growing list of Internet options has resulted in many more people finding their ancestors in Ireland.
