Tracing Northern Irish roots in the UK

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Neil Report 26 May 2006 11:30

I am working on my family tree and I live in Liverpool, UK. I have managed to trace one branch of my family tree back to c1860 in Ireland (Co. Armagh) and the other branch back to c.1830 in Ireland (area unknown). Now, I have hit a brickwall and don't seem able to progress this any more. I have access to the Census' online and that is how I have managed to get this far back. What other records can people recommend that may be able to assist me? At the moment, it is impracticle for me to travel to either London or Ireland to progress this and so I am looking for something close or online.
