73. Scarcity of Early Irish Records
It seems like we're never going to get a good record source for pre-1810 Irish genealogy records. Time after time a new records group is announced with a big splash by some website, but when I check it out the start date is disappointing--1837, 1845, 1866, etc. Since our folks left Carlow in 1805, we may have a long wait for new sources. Thank goodness we have the family Bible. Without that we would still be groping for a connection in Ireland.
