As a Nolan family researcher you will also want to familiarize yourself with the history and geography of Ireland and also the various online resources available to held you with your research.
I have identified several websites which could be of help to you in your Ireland-specific research and you can access these via the following link pages:
- Irish History
- Irish Geography
- Travel to Ireland
- Ireland-Specific Research
- Quick Search in Ireland
- DNA Testing Links
- Research Links
Once you have traced your family tree as far back as you can go on your own I invite you to submit information about the first two generations in your Nolan family tree using the Information Submission form found at the end of this page. The information you supply will then be recorded in the website Family Stories archive so that all Nolans within the worldwide diaspora become aware of your particular Nolan ancestry and possibly see how it might link in to that of other known Nolan lines.
