Irish Genealogy News - Irish Genealogy Magazines

Happy St. Patrick’s Day (almost)!

The following is information about two magazines devoted to Irish genealogy. One is free and both, I’ve found, present helpful insight.

Irish Roots has been published since 1992. It’s available for a 25 euro subscription (4 issues per year) at “Genealogy is the main focus, but Irish history, culture and news also feature prominently.”

Irish Lives Remembered ( is a FREE monthly digital magazine which has been published for 10 months. There is no paper version. The current issue has 86 pages including special sections for researching Tipperary and Australia. When viewing an issue, you can save it to your computer by clicking on PDF download at the bottom of the screen.

On Wednesday March 20, 2013 at 6:30pm, I’ll be presenting my Course III – Irish Name Variations & Search Techniques at the Ogden Farmer’s Library.

On Saturday April 20, 2013, the Rochester Genealogical Society (RGS) will be hosting a full day conference: A Day of British Genealogy Research with Paul Milner. Paul is an entertaining and knowledgeable speaker who has spoken at the major genealogical conferences. Even for those of us without a British line, I expect that we’ll be exposed to valuable tidbits. (Since Ireland was under British rule for a long time, there are many relevant Irish records in British repositories!) Pre-registration is required and full details are at
