Search for relatives in Achill
I'm told there are a lot of people in Achill with whom I share
my name and I know there might be relatives.  I've tried to
find out how to contact them but no luck so far. Achill is an
Island off the West Coast and in County Mayo. I was there last
September but on a whirlwind tour, so no opportunity to check
it out. I'd appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks

1. Try the new census link
I captures 1001 and 1911 census info - very cool,

If you know town lands and peoples names it is easy to use and start the ball rollong

Pick a year 1901 or 1911, then particulars, name, county , town land, etc

Good hunting! Narraback
