Kerry Family Group Record Project


Here you will find links to pages donated by Kerry researchers outlining their family groups. If you have family members from Kerry you are invited to donate your data please email me.

Guidelines and Format to be followed can be found below. Please read the guidelines and format instructions carefully. One Family Group Record per person for now please while I evaluate how the project is going as its still in its infancy and may change as needs require.

To search ther records we have so far, click below on the first letter of the surname you are interested in. Note: O' names will be listed WITHOUT the prefixes. i.e. You will find O'Neil under "N" not "O".

Guidelines:
1) Names
All surnames should be in caps, but not given names.
ie Hugh O'CONNOR
Woman's names should  be given as their maiden names when known. ie Johanna FITZGERALD m. Hugh O'CONNOR
(Not: Johanna Fitzgerald O'Connor)
At the top of your family history I suggest a list all the Kerry surnames (spouses) found in your data so researchers can know right away what names of interest are in your material. I will provide links to your family history information for ONE surname and it must be from Kerry.
2) Dates
Dates should be written as Day, Month, Year, with the month spelled out as to avoid confusion with number dates. (Note:Europeans switch month and day from what those of us in the U.S. do!)


Correct: 11 Dec 1999
Wrong: 12-11-1999
Wrong: 11/12/99

Please include all four numbers in the year. Writing '99 isn't good enough . The reader is left wondering; 1999? 1899? 1799?

3) Places

Townland/Town, Parish, County, Country
Start with the smallest division to the largest.

4) Standard abbreviations


m marriage
b birth
d death
> emigrated to    (ie Kerry > Canada)

5) There MUST be a Kerry connection.
6) You MUST provide an email address for interested researchers to contact you.
7) Be brief and concise, follow the format and guidelines!
A Word .doc attached to an email is prefered. Otherwise the data within an email is fine.
8) The nature of a Family Group Record is:
one family/one surname
Therefore, your info will be listed under the surname of the "husband" area of our format. Right now I am accepting ONE Family Group Record from each person.
Thank you for your contribution!
