DearREADERS,

Jim explains "The county of Clare is famous for its music and scenery, including the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. The major families of the county include the O’Briens, McNamaras, McMahons and O’Loughlins. The county was badly affected by the Great Famine of 1845-50 during which 64,000 died or  emigrated  to many destinations throughout the world. This book sets out the availability of records to the family history researcher, where they can be obtained, and includes numerous illustrations." You'll find further information here.

Happy family tree climbing!
