    Many people assume that it is much easier to move between social classes today than in the past. But new research by economist Gregory Clark, based on tracking family names across generations, reveals that mobility rates are lower than conventionally estimated, and that inherited advantage remains a deeply entrenched force.

      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.
