By now I hope you will realise that researching your family history on the web is not an overly daunting task. There are many very interesting websites out there. Not all resources mentioned in this manual are available on the web yet, but in due course this will probably change.
National Archives of Ireland, Dublin (http://www.nationalarchives.ie) offers a free genealogical advisory service.
National Library of Ireland, Dublin (http://www.nli.ie) offers a free genealogical advisory service.
The Irish Genealogical Project (http://www.irishroots.net) provide, for a fee, an ancestry tracing service for the public.
