How Can I Find My Irish Ancestor?
You may have a family story or a document that says one of your ancestors came from Ireland. You don't know where in Ireland, or perhaps you only know the name of a county. You want to know more. A good place to start is by finding your family in the country where they settled. Read on to learn what you can do.
== Counties  ==
Before 1922, the whole of Ireland was an integral part of the United Kingdom, consisting thirty-two historic counties.&nbsp;After 1922 part of Ireland became independent and was known as the Irish Free State. The Free State went on to become the Republic of Ireland in 1949, while Northern Ireland remained a part of the United Kingdom. The two countries in Ireland today are:
*Northern Ireland with&nbsp;six counties
*Republic of Ireland with twenty-six counties
For further historic information, see [[Counties of Ireland]].
The map below shows the whole of Ireland.&nbsp; The&nbsp;six counties of Northern Ireland are divided from the rest by a heavy black line. Note that Donegal is part of the Republic of Ireland.
