Did your Irish ancestors hail from Emyvale in County Monaghan or the Strokestown Estate in County Roscommon? Were they tenant farmers on the Fitzwilliam Estate in County Wicklow or where they early entrepreneurs setting out from Cobh to make their fortunes?
Are you related to the fishermen who regularly set sail from Waterford for the Grand Banks over four hundred years ago? Or are you a descendant of the passengers who travelled to Québec on
the Jeanie Johnston during 'Black 47'?
Or did your relatives actually emigrate from Canada to Ireland!
If you're looking for your roots here are some useful links which
we hope to add to in the future. And we will also be adding
a feature which will allow you to share your stories.

Eleanor McGrath's 'Kanata: An Irish Story'
explores the history of the Irish in Canada
in a new light through voices from
Newfoundland to Northwest Territories. The film is a
family album of individuals some famous; others
should be and some just want to be heard.
