Flyleaf Press,  the publishing arm of Ancestor Network,   has published a fourth edition of ‘Tracing your Dublin Ancestors’’ by James G Ryan and Brian Smith.    The title   is a comprehensive guide to all of the records available for tracing families in the city and county of Dublin and is filled with information on what the records contain, and how and where they can be accessed. This includes guidance on researching in the many archives in Dublin City.  It is well illustrated with maps and with examples of the types of records to be found; and with other relevant background material.  It also provides background on the social history of Dublin and how this history has affected the keeping and survival of records. There is also a comprehensive index.  You can order it here.

This is the latest in a series of county guides published by Flyleaf Press.  These include guides for Kildare, Limerick, Sligo, Galway, Cork, Clare, Westmeath, Kerry, Limerick, Roscommon, Mayo and Donegal.

Reviews of previous editions have said:   ‘Well-written, concise and easy to follow. It lists the records available for Dublin city and county, including individual church records…. A most valuable contribution to Irish genealogy’ (Irish Family Links);  and ‘…An impressive amount of information intelligently presented’    (NY Genealogical & Biographical Record).
