We are excited to announce that the third indexed volume of Ireland: The Annals of Beara has been added to its database, adding 50,069 records and 49,391 names!

Riobard O’Dwyer published this three-volume study of the families of the Beara Peninsula (West Cork, Ireland) in 2009. The work contains information on families from the parishes of Adrigole and Allihies (in Volume 1); Bere Island and Eyeries (in Volume 2); and Castletownbere and Glengarriff (in Volume 3). Volume 3 also contains a brief history of the O’Sullivan clan.

The family records range in date from 1776 to 1992, with the majority of records in the period 1822-1956. Many of the families and descendants are traced from their origins in Beara to the United States and other countries.

This database is now indexed for all three volumes. Tables of contents for all three volumes may be downloaded to help locate the volumes and pages for specific towns and parishes in Beara. The NEHGS Library also holds the research papers of Riobard O’Dwyer in its Special Collections, call number Mss 1097.

Special thanks to Sam Sturgis for his help implementing this update!
