Now, updated to reflect the enormous changes brought about by the Internet, the new Third Edition of Tracing Your Irish Ancestors marks another huge step forward in Irish genealogy. Most importantly, a chapter has been added that deals specifically with the Internet, while a new online subsection showing county Internet sources has been added to each of the county source lists and, where possible, references have been given throughout for any online versions of the records dealt with. In addition, in this new Third Edition the Roman Catholic parish maps have been completely revised and redrawn, a guide to variant parish names has been supplied, and the reference section has been greatly enlarged.
