Irish Families Genealogy Project

Seven Counties now with color maps. Now on the presses we are adding color maps to these Irish Counties: Tipperary; Cavan and Leitrim.  These counties are added to: Galway; Dublin; Donegal; Limerick; and Clare which have 19th century maps in color.  These are detailed maps, that can help in finding your way when researching !  Each map is displayed prominently on the cover of the county book it represents.

These books are part of the 34 volume set, the ‘Irish Families Project’ which covers every county in Ireland.  All counties are in stock and available at:

I am also adding a new blog from our Irish Hedge School pages at:

Much more to come !    -Mike O’Laughlin, session leader, Irish Hedge School

Our First Video:
I note the beginnings of the Irish Roots Cafe back in 1978,
and the books and podcasts we have produced to help family
researchers. The Cafe is the internet arm of the Irish
Genealogical Foundation.  I’ve published over 60 books and
100 podcasts since those beginnings.  You can find them
all on my web page of course (

Record Number of Firsts in Podcasting
We now have a total of 5 podcast feeds, including the first
weekly Irish genealogy podcast; the first weekly enhanced
genealogy podcast; and now the first weekly video podcast
on genealogy in iTunes.  ( That, and a dollar will get me a
cup of coffee of course ! )

You need to call in and add your 2 cents worth !
This is still a one man operation – and I can use all the input

real people.  So, call or e-mail me if you have a comment or
