As a professional genealogist, I am constantly referring back to the GENUKI links. There are specific county sections as well as categories covering all of Ireland. The basic categories for both are: Archives and Libraries, Bibliography, Biography, Cemeteries, Census, Chronology, Church Records, Civil Registration, Court Records, Description and Travel, Directories, Emigration and Immigration, Gazetteers, Genealogy, Heraldry, History, Land and Property, Maps, Military History, Names (Geographical), Names (Personal) Newspapers, Nobility, Occupations, Periodicals, Probate Records, Social Life and Customs, Societies, and Taxation.
Some Irish counties do not have much, while others have a myriad of links to explore. Some links lead you to the Irish GenWeb Project, others to the local heritage centre, various databases, and just as many to sites developed by individuals with a specific interest. There’s no way of knowing what you will find until you look. Also, you will need to keep referencing GENUKI as this is a growing website constantly being added.
I can personally recommend GENUKI from years of constant use. It doesn’t always have a link which answers a question I might have. However, when it does, and I solve a problem, I couldn’t be happier!
