Family history societies often publish helpful journals, transcripts, compiled genealogies and host helpful websites. They may have ongoing projects to transcribe records and create indexes. Most societies publish queries in their journals and maintain lists of members’ research interests that may be helpful to you. You may want to join one of these societies, reap the benefits of their expertise and resources, or support its efforts.
Addresses of the societies are for the most part where their meetings are held as they are by-and-large not brick-and-mortar institutions.
Regional Societies[edit | edit source]
- The Old Athlone Society preserves and publishes the history of the Athlone area, mainly by annual programmes of lectures and through its occasional publications.
- Home counties of Association members include Galway, Clare, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo, and Leitrim, with some members coming from as far afield as Cork. It is a self-help group for its members and does not carry out research. The Association provides a continually expanding library of genealogical and historical books for members’ usage, which is available monthly.
Roscommon Society[edit | edit source]
- Roscommon County Museum, in Roscommon Town, displays a range of unique items relating to the history of Roscommon. It is run by County Roscommon Historical and Archaeological Society and their journal can be bought there.
