    Default Finding Irish Ancestors

    You could try this site:

    irish-roots.net
    I got some interesting information on my family, they do charge a fee but are very helpful.

    Default Wicklow, Ireland

    Try the LDS site but go to advanced search and click on pilot search (2nd on list) covering Civil Registrations from 1845. Its a bit twitchy but you can limit your search by the options. I have spent five years looking for my family and have found more in the last few weeks than the last five years. Give it a try!

    I was trying to find some of my ancestors in Ireland who came from Letterkenny in Co Donegal.
    I discovered that a chap had transcribed lots of information into a book (census, directories etc), that I duely bought. Immediately I found who I was looking for.
    So try: exporingfamilyorigins

    You may find everything you need.

    Another good idea is to google "bmd's + county". The Ireland forum has a lot of resources that are too numerous to list.
    Sadly, our friend Vanessa, passed away 29th. February 2012.

    Life is brief. Time is a thief.

    Hi

    I can TOTALLY recommend this site! We spent a bit of money but found quite a few of our Irish ancestors here:

    ifhf.brsgenealogy.com/index.php

    and, this may not help a lot, but is well worth a try:

    www.
    irishgenealogy.ie/index.html

    Good luck!

    Dale & Sue
