The Irish At Home And Abroad Journal

The Irish at Home and Abroad is a genealogy journal that was published in the 1990s. It came out quarterly for six years between 1993 and 1999 and to this day is still one of the most in-depth and detailed research publications that can help you with a wide variety of topics. This should not be a surprise as it was edited by Kyle Betit and Dwight Radford, two of the foremost experts in the U.S. on the topic of Irish genealogy.

A peruse through the table of article titles[1] shows the many interesting topics that can help with Irish genealogy research in the U.S. and Canada. 'Alberta Irish,' 'Brooklyn Diocese, Catholic Church Records,' 'Ancient Order of Hibernians in the US,' Repeal Societies in North America,' and 'San Francisco Irish' are just a sample.

If you find an article that may help you with your research there are a number of ways to obtain a copy. First, most large genealogy institutions and libraries should have a set of the journals. Check the GSI database on this website for relevant places. Second, one of those institutions, the Allen County Public Library in Indiana, has a service called PERSI that you can obtain genealogy journal articles from.
