When the first edition of this book appeared in 2005 it was quickly recognised as an essential work of reference for family historians researching Ulster ancestors in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. At more than twice the size of the original, this new edition is a massively expanded version of the first volume. It opens up many avenues for research, drawing attention to the riches of archives inside and outside of the island of Ireland, demonstrating the benefit of often undervalued, rare, even quite unconventional, yet accessible sources which can help document your ancestors back to the 1600s. The new edition includes additional information on church records and landed estate papers, as well as new chapters looking at records relating to law and order, emigration, business and occupations, diaries and journals, and clubs and societies. The extensive appendices to the book include a summary breakdown of the sources available from this
period for every parish in the historic nine counties of Ulster (including a listing of surviving pre-1800 church records), and a detailed description of around 350 landed estate collections Whether your ancestors are of English, Scottish or Gaelic Irish background, whether their religious affiliation was Episcopalian, Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic or other, whether they were farmers, merchants or labourers, this volume will be of enormous value to anyone wishing to find out more about their Ulster roots.
