This title sets out the records (including websites) available for tracing the history and genealogy of families in Co. Limerick, Ireland. The genealogical sources for Limerick are diverse because of the nature of the county, which contains both remote rural agricultural communities and an urban population in Limerick city. The most common family names include O'Brien, Ryan, Donovan, Sheehan, Hallinan, Hurley and Scanlan. Many Limerick people emigrated in the late 18th and 19th centuries. Almost 17 per cent of the population emigrated in the 1850's alone. This book will be of direct interest to the descendants of these emigrants. It details the types of records available, where they can be accessed and how they can best be used to trace ancestors in the county and city of Limerick. It is well illustrated with maps of administrative divisions, and examples of the types of records to be found. There is also a comprehensive index.
