Irish Ancestry: Where to start?


Valued Member

Now, I've a branch of my family who are Irish; my Grandmother came over and married my Grandfather in the '50's, and I know very little about her family. Although I've managed to extract some info out of her, I always feel she is reluctant to talk about it. (not a happy childhood as far as I know)

I have her parents' names and one set of her grandparents, but I'm wondering where to go from here. I've never researched ancestors outside of London before, so find it a bit daunting. I feel a should find a bit more about her family, as opposed to her husbands. I'm sure she'd love to know more.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Ryan :)
