Irish Genealogy research guide to be published

Cover of Tracing your family history using Irish newspapers and other printed sources by Natalie Bodle

The final proof of my forthcoming book has gone to the publishers and the jacket design has been finalised.

The book entitled Tracing your family history using Irish newspapers and other printed materials is due to be published by Pen and Sword in February 2024.

The book describes where Irish newspapers may be found in archives, libraries and online collections and also provides information about where to find transcriptions, abstracts and indices from newspapers.

However, the book which covers much more than just newspapers includes guidance on where to find periodicals and journals of Irish interest, including those from various genealogy societies.

Chapters are devoted to biographies and genealogies, The Gazette, almanacs and street directories, gazetteers and topographical dictionaries, online libraries and book publishers.

Examples and case studies demonstrate how this range of printed sources can provide rich detail and expand your knowledge of your Irish ancestors.

The book will be available to pre-order from Pen and Sword in the near future at

It will be available to purchase from all good bookshops and the usual online retailers.
