Donegal families are an interesting mix of native Irish familes and of the Scots-Irish who came to the county from the 17th century onward. It is one of the Irish counties which have experienced a high level of emigration to North America, Scotland, and North of England. This new and greatly expanded edition sets out the range of Donegal genealogical sources available to the family history researcher. It devotes a chapter to each source type explaining what information each contains, and where each record can be accessed.
