Burke's Landed Gentry Irish Families now searchable online
Burke's Landed Gentry Irish Families, lists land-owning families of Ireland, many of which record generations stretching back many centuries. Interestingly, many of the families recorded during the first half of the 20th Century were "formerly of", indicating they no longer held the lands to which the record referred. Their inclusion was justified because of the significant contribution they and their ancestors had made to Ireland's development down the centuries.
