Pulsing through Irish veins is an adventurous spiritthat has inspired millions of Irish people to travel androam the globe over the centuries. Their motives rangedfrom the religious fervour of the seventh centurymonks who set out to re-Christianise Europe, to thedisillusionment of the Irish nobility who departed inthe seventeenth and eighteenth centuries after a seriesof disastrous wars. Many Presbyterians from theNorthern counties looked to the New World for thereligious tolerance denied them at home, while otheradventurous souls left for South America and theCaribbean as seafarers, traders and merchants. The19th century saw the greatest mass exodus from Irelandto America and Australia, driven out by famine, povertyand disease. The practice of emigration continued upto the middle of the twentieth century, especially toEngland. There are up to a million people of Irishdescent in Great Britain, many of whose childrenand grandchildren are delighted to renew theirIrish connections. The descendants of allthese disparate groups will be equallywelcomed on the ancestral trail.

The first and most important task is to seek outinformation from your own immediate family.Encourage older relations to recount their stories andtales. Gather all written material such as letters, wills,diaries, photographs, certificates and other familydocuments. Family burial plots should also be visited,as gravestone inscriptions can sometimes yieldvaluable information.If however, you have no older relatives to consultabout family history, or if the family archives do notcontain vital clues regarding your Irish born ancestor,do not be disheartened. It should be possible for youto access records within your own country and thusgain the necessary clues to help you further yourresearch. Civil marriage certificates often contain thenames of at least one parent. Gravestone inscriptionsand obituary notices can record valuable informationsuch as precise place of origin in Ireland and names ofparents. Other clues may be extracted from documentssuch as naturalisation papers, census returns etc.If you are planning a trip to Ireland in the near futureand hope to combine your holiday with a littlefamily history research, now is the time to make goodpreparation.Before deciding to rush off and book a flight to theland of your ancestors, it is important for you to takesome time to study the history of your family. In orderto make good progress with research in Ireland,you must first gather as much basic information aspossible on your ancestor, such as:
1.

2.

3.

4.
Religious Denomination
5.
