John Grenham is a “go-to guy” for Irish genealogy topics. He recently updated his “Irish Ancestors” website with a comprehensive list of online Irish records: http://www.irishtimes.com/ancestor/browse/online.htm
Grenham’s website has terrific search options (e.g., Surname, Ancestor, Placenames, Browse, Wizard) and great maps.
Even better, you’ll have a chance to see and hear John Grenham in person at the Celtic Connections conference, “The Leaving of Home: Migration, Motivation and Myth,” August 15-16 in Waltham, MA.
