Tracing your Family History using Irish Newspapers and Other Printed Material is a great introduction for the family historian into Irish newspapers, journals and periodicals and how these resources can be used to paint a picture of the lives of your ancestors with so much more than what can be found in primary source material.

Published by Pen and Sword, this informative guide has hints and tips throughout, as well as case studies and excerpts that show you the type of material you can find on your ancestors, their lives and where they lived.

Natalie Bodle explores how to find information in biographies, genealogies and name books, as well as how to find your ancestors in the official record, The Gazette, and how to track them down in street directories, including a range of physical and online libraries, portals and book publishers who have a focus on Irish genealogy material. 

Other key information included is where to find a range of birth, marriage and death notices as well as obituaries that can help to build your family tree
