Summary

Summary

This book is designed as a practical guide for those who wish to access Church of Ireland records held in public repositories throughout the whole of Ireland. Refauss���� begins by presenting a concise history of the church in Ireland which evolves into a discussion of surviving early manuscript sources. Parish registers, vestry records, preachers���­ books and Episcopal correspondence to records of the Consistoral courts and those of the Board of First Fruits receive particularly detailed coverage. The second section of the book provides detailed practical advice to the researcher.
