View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Donegal has fewer genealogical records than most Irish counties. Donegal families are a mixture of native Gaelic families and Scots-Irish families who settled in the county from the 17th century onward. The records are both diverse in nature, and also widely scattered. Although the major sources are within the Republic of Ireland, there are also some records in Belfast repositories. This book sets out the records available, and where they can be accessed.
