        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.

          The biggest reason I made this video was to get the word out that there has never been any such thing as an "Irish Family Tartan or plaid". Clan or Family Tartans are a proud Scottish tradition - but are not found in Irish History. The Scots Irish may make such a link to tartans, but not the old native Irish families. Any stories to the contrary are just that - stories. A researcher with a knowledge of Irish History and sources can confirm this. Please be true to Irish History and get the facts. A tartan is fine, but don't buy the sales pitch that it is 'your' Irish family Tartan. You will have been fooled ! I have spent many years in the field and wrote "The Irish Book of Arms" a few years back.
