Irish Genealogy Starter Pack Irish Genealogy Starter Pack
BeginPack

This pack consists of three CD-roms, selected by Fiona Fitzsimons of Eneclann, specifically with the beginner in Irish genealogy in mind.

The following CDs are included in the pack:

· Counties in Time

· Grenham's Irish surnames

· Lewis's Topographical Dictionary

Fiona explains why these CDs will be of interest to those starting out in Irish genealogy:

Programmes such as Who Do You Think You Are? make genealogy look as easy as 1-2-3, but hide all the hard work that goes into producing an extended family history. For most beginners, one of the most difficult things is to know what records are most likely to contain information relevant to your family.

Counties in Time: is an introduction to 31 classes of record that date from the 1500s to the 1900s, and are held in the National Archives of Ireland on Bishop's Street. These 31 classes of record were chosen because they provide coverage for the island of Ireland, but also because taken together these records provide a framework for Irish history from the Tudor conquest to Independence in the 20th Century.

Counties in Time explains how, why and when these records were put together, and the type of information that you are likely to find in them, so that you can assess whether these records will be useful for your genealogical research. It also provides a history of each county, so that you can understand your ancestors in the context of their own time and place. This CD provides a photograph of most original documents for each county, so that you can see with your own eyes some of the difficulties of using original documents, including damage, fading and old script (palaeography).

Grenham's Irish Surnames: Ireland was the first place in Europe to introduce hereditary surnames (during the tenth century). Between the 900s and 1700s, nine centuries of change across Europe saw the introduction of surnames into Ireland, which reflect the history of our island nation. Migration, colonisation, conquest and refugees seeking religious tolerance have all contributed to the extraordinary legacy of surnames in use in Ireland today. The names of Gaels and Scots, Vikings, Normans, Welsh, English, French Huguenots, and German Palatines all contribute to the rich mix of surnames borne by the Irish today. This CD Rom is a resource for anyone interested in the origins of their Irish surnames. It includes details of over twenty six thousand Irish surnames, and over 100,000 variants of these names.

Lewis's Topographical Dictionary: After the Famine, the rate of emigration and land clearance changed the rural Irish countryside forever. In the 20th Century, development has further altered the Irish landscape. Lewis's Topographical Dictionary as a source dates from the late 1830s in the time immediately before the Famine. It was intended by its author as a dictionary of places in Ireland, and provides a sketch of the details of daily life as lived in towns, villages and rural communities at that time. It provides a window into the past for those engaged in family and local history.

Normally these three publications would cost almost €80 but we are offering this package to Eneclann customers for €39.90.

The Irish Wills Package The Irish Wills Package
WillsPack

Selected by research director, Fiona Fitzsimons, the Irish Wills package is for genealogists who have some archival experience, and are ready to extend their research range beyond the most commonly used sources - the 1901 and 1911 Census, the parish registers, Griffiths' Valuation and the Tithe Applotment Books.

From the researcher's own perspective, it makes practical sense to group these three publications together:

· Vicar's Index to Prerogative Wills

· Philimore and Thrift's Indexes to Irish wills (as taken from the Diocesan Courts)

· The Dublin Will & Grant books 1634-1858

The first two are the published catalogues of wills and administrations, and marriage license records for all historic documents that were ever enrolled in the Prerogative Court, or at local level in the Diocesan (consistorial) Courts. In many instances, these catalogue references are the only surviving evidence that remains of these individuals or families, as most of these records were deposited in the Public Records Office and were destroyed in 1922.

The third source, is a similar publication, but devoted solely to those records generated by Dublin Diocese up to 1858 and cover three volumes. As a consequence the information is more detailed.

Together, these three publications record nearly 200,000 wills, administrations and marriage licence bonds.

Normally these three publications would cost more than €70 but we are offering this package to Eneclann customers for €39.90.
