A New Genealogical Atlas of Ireland

Front Cover
Genealogical Publishing Company, Jan 1, 1986 - Ireland - 123 pages
A key resource in Irish genealogical research, this second edition contains maps detailing the location of Roman Catholic parishes in all 32 countries of Ireland and Presbyterian congregations in the nine counties of Northern Ireland. Information collected here is essential for tracing pre-1864 ancestors in church records and useful for locating post-1864 ancestors in civil records, with descriptions and maps of the parochial and civil administrative divisions to which all major Irish record sources are linked. To aid researchers in identifying the precise location of administrative divisions, there are at least four maps for every county, depicting Church of Ireland parishes, baronies, and Church of Ireland dioceses, poor law unions and the parishes included within the probate districts serving that county, and Roman Catholic parishes and dioceses.
