I haven't had a chance to utilize this but a lot of Scottish Clans have their own resident geneologist. From what I understand they are able to do & find quite a bit of info.
Just thought you'd like to know & maybe already did!

No, I didn't know that. Thanks MsKaty for the information. How do you go about it? Do you contact a clan society on the net or what?

Just a brief opinion:

For the money, features, ease-of-use, support and depth of available information, Ancestry.com is by far the best of the listed subscription-based sites. I've been using Ancestry.com for several years and I'm more than happy with the site. biggrin.gif

For non-subscription use, the LDS site can be fairly useful as well but be cautious of incomplete information and records.

As always, I'd recommend you validate and cross-reference any information you find on any of these sites (subscription-based or not) with other available records to ensure you're on the right path. Occasionally, you'll find that information posted at these sites can be misleading and downright inaccurate (even on subscription-based sites). Be cautious who you communicate and share records with and by all means do not divulge any personal information about yourself or your immediate family.

If you have the time, money and patience, invest in the skills and experience of a reputable genealogist---and ask for references if you choose to enlist their help. If they're not willing to provide references, move on and find someone else who can and will.

I've just got a second today and thought I'd ask here - does anyone know if Bell is a Scottish name?

I am trying to find records that precede the Easter rebellion. It seems a lot of records were 'lost' (destroyed) during that time.

I've run into I dead end. With common surnames such as McGrath in Clare and Lyons in Mayo it is difficult find any information.

Any points to sources will be greatly appreciated.

I have been able trace the family in the USA, but that is only three generations including myself. Some arrived here prior to 1916, but not by much, so the tracing is difficult.

One of the hardest things about researching, is going through page after page of postings from others on genealogy pages. If you take your time and read each one, it can be rewarding. With that said, you will stay very busy with the two names you are searching. Start here: http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll...f3=&f8=&sx=&f6= and here: http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll...f3=&f8=&sx=&f6= When you get burned out and frustrated mark your spot that you left on and switch to the other name. Since Lyons has over 26,000 posts alone, you will be very busy there.

Also, post whatever you do know under those names and don't be vague. If you post useless info, people viewing your post will have no idea what you are really looking for.

You are correct about lack of official records. Both counties you are dealing with, lost most of their records, either, through the riots or during WWII when Ireland recycled the paper that the records were on.

Check you PM box. I'm sending you an e-mail address for you to contact that person who should help a bit for County Mayo info.

I'm back into geneology mode again...always seems to happen after a family reunion. Anyway my family actually has a book published with the lines verified up until the 1900's. Work in process now to create the coverage for the past 100 years or so. Anyway there are tons of published geneologies out at http://www.higginsonbooks.com and some are very reasonably priced and some like mine are a bit more but well worth the investment if it's something you're going to base your searches from.

I think I'm actually going to pick my great grandparents and work forward in time so that I can at least get all the information I can on the new generations so that when it's time to pull the new book together I'll have already compiled all the information I need from my aunts and uncles and their kids and grandkids....
