Co. Mayo, Genealogical Guides, Tracing your Ancestors
In comparison with most other Irish counties, Mayo has fewer records of value to family historians. This makes it important to use the existing records to their best advantage. The main Mayo families include Walsh, Gallagher, Kelly, O'Malley, Moran, MacHale, Gibbons, Joyce, Connor, Conway, Higgins, Murphy, Burke, Bourke, Reilly or Riley, Durkan or Durkin, Doherty, McHugh, MacHugh, Sweeney, Sweeny and Lyons. This book sets out the records available, where they can be accessed, and how they can be used to best effect in tracing Mayo families.
"I highly recommend Tracing Your Mayo Ancestors for both amateur and professional genealogists. It is a meticulously researched and attractively presented book. The extracted document and manuscript illustrations presented throughout the book help the reader to envisage what they can expect to find through their own research. It is a reliable companion whether one is researching from home via the internet or in a library or archive. It is a must have for serious genealogists on the quest for Mayo ancestors."
