Family History
NOTES and Coats of Arms

Finding Your Family in Counties Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow This illustrated, well indexed book, was created exclusively to help you find your family in County Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow, Ireland. Focusing specifically on families within the county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow. The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as rather rare Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow families found in heraldic records. Included you will find a full page county map from the Atlas of Ireland, along with a listing of modern parishes and old townlands, along with the address and location of records for more research. Published by the Irish Genealogical Foundation, this book was originally made for members researching in Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow.

What this book does This work includes copies of actual records (some worn, torn and faded), from the IGF Library. It also includes rough sketches of family coats of arms and notes from centuries past - seldom found elsewhere. The resources provided here will help research any family in the county, including old Irish families, and settler families from England, Scotland, Wales and the continent. This book is a hands on guide for finding your family in Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow - some family history is included - but it is not a gigantic collection of family histories . (For that see 'The Book of Irish Families, great & small', the first book in the Irish Families series by O'Laughlin.)

The Irish Families Project for Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow The Master book to the 29 volume Irish Families series is 'The Book of Irish Families, great & small'. That book gives hundreds of family histories from County Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow, and the surrounding areas. "County Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow Genealogy and Family History Notes", volume 16 in the series, expands upon that coverage with added families and new resources just for Kildare, Wicklow & Carlow. (In this way both books can work together as a set if desired, or they may be used independently for research.)

The complete existing returns from the 'census' of 1659,
also showing the methods of spelling family names and place names at that time in history. This census is organized by barony, townland and parish. The baronies included are Ophaly; Naase; Clane; Connell; Salt; Reban and Narragh; Kilkae and Moone; Ikeathye; Carbery; Kilcullen; Catherlagh; Rathvily; Forth; and Idrone & St. Molins. The full names of tituladoes are given, such as Clement Ryan, Bryan Kavanagh, Peirce Butler, Thomas Ewers, Thomas Eliott, Edward Fitzharris, Garrott Kinselagh, Jonathan Freind, and so on. Furthermore, at the end of each barony there is a list of 'Principall Irish Names and Their Number'. In one barony the names of Bolger 13, Byrne 64, Brenan 16, Bane 11, Curren 22, O Clovan 5, Duffe 12, Dillan 65, Foly 10, and so on are given. This is repeated for each barony. Different surnames appear in different baronies, thus providing a clue for researchers. It is important to note that the spellings of place names and family names changed over time. The researcher should be aware of minor changes in the spelling of his name. Also in this section are extracts from the Topographical Dictionary and Keatings History, along with wills for the diocese of Leighlin 1652-1800.
