This Irish Genealogy site offers the Irish descendant (from New York, Canada, UK, Australia...) the chance to trace their Irish family tree and search for their surname origins and the records of their Irish ancestor's birth, marriage or death.
This article is intended to introduce readers to a genealogical source
which is much undervalued - probably because it is patchwork, widely dispersed
and difficult to locate. I hope this introduction will whet your appetite
by showing what the papers of a well-run estate might contain, using the
Coolattin estate of the Earls of Fitzwilliam as an example. In the next
issue I will attempt to offer a guide to readers trying to locate their
own family in such records.
