Having authored the Book of Irish Families, I decided to create a companion podcast, free for everyone, focusing on all the Irish Families found in my book. Most of my listeners come from America, Ireland, the U.K., Australia and Canada.
It is the first podcast of its kind!
I am the author of the Irish Families project, which includes 34 volumes of Irish Family History and research aids. Thought it would be helpful to explain what the different volumes cover. It has really been enjoyable authoring this collection over the last 30 years.
I wrote the first edition of this book back in 1978, and it has become the Master Volume of the Irish Families Project. Thought I would explain a little about how it is put together. I've added a few things over the years to help researchers begin the search for a location in Ireland.
After finishing up the Kansas City Video, several folks asked where the one for St. Louis was, so - here it is. I found a lot of the information while writing 'Missouri Irish' which included several towns in Missouri. The Kerry Patch settlement during the Irish famine years, is a good place to start the story.
