Irish Families Genealogy master 34 book set launch

The Irish Roots Cafe at

Historic Irish Genealogy set
I began ‘The Irish Families Project’ 34 years ago and it is now complete.
The first complete set of it’s kind, there is a book for every county
in Ireland and Northern Ireland. I’ve included over 1,000 illustrations,
hundreds of documented coats of arms, and 50,000 families in the set.
Several counties have 2 separate volumes including Clare; Kerry; Cork;
Galway; Limerick; Donegal; and Dublin. Each book has a surname index in
the back of the volume.

New 4th edition Master Volume
For the first time ever, the Master volume to the set, the Book of
Irish Families, great and small
, has the complete index to all 34 books,
as well as additional family histories and a location index for all Irish counties!

National Launch in 2013
The set was launched in Kansas City at Brownes Irish Market this June;
subsequently at the Dublin, OH., Irish Festival in August.
The final launch upcoming at the Louisville, KY., Irish fest (Sept 27-29).
