A few years back, Ol' Myrt had the privlege of interviewing Brian Smith, author of Tracing Your Mayo Ancestors. Now we find he has come out with an updated edition A Guide to Tracing Your Mayo Ancestors 2nd edition.
Brian explains the book "describes how to best use the records available, and where they can be accessed. For each type of record it provides background information on how they were compiled and what information was contained, and on which categories of people. It also provides background on the social history of
and how this history has affected the keeping and survival of records." County Mayo
