Historical and genealogical societies may have valuable genealogical information on your ancestor. Some societies focus on a specific area, region, family line, or name, while others deal with all of Ireland. Many publish helpful journals, transcripts, and compiled genealogies. Some publish queries about Irish ancestors or maintain lists of members' research interests. Some have special indexes, collections, and projects. Many are based in countries to which Irish immigrated, such as the United States or Australia. You may want to join and support the efforts of one of these societies.

The names and addresses of these societies are listed in:
