The Farrells of Donegal :
and associated families /
|Summary:||"Sam Hanna's book on the (O) Farrells/Ferrells spans an incredible 1,400 years, set in the context of the political, social and economic landscape of Ireland. The main focus of the book is on the Farrells in the post-Plantation period, in particular in the barony of Tirhugh in southeast Donegal. The book is more than a history of one family. In a lucid and flowing style, Sam Hana charts the social and political history of west Ulster. He has employed the traditional tools of the genealogist and historian--wills, maps, leases, army lists, hearth money rolls, and church records. His use of DNA evidence has opened up challenging avenues for genealogists across the globe, thus creating an international dimension"--Back cover. |
