FF23 CRAZY CRATE: BOOK 13: C027 A SEARCH FOR YOUR IRISH ROOTS. By the Irish Family Names Society. This little 12 page pamphlet, upon further exploration, appears to be a handout from the society. It has some very good advice in its 12 pages and gives The Genealogical Office, Dublin Castle, Dublin 2, IRELAND as an address to which you should send a copy of your work. It comments that the function of the Society, then, is an attempt to rebuild the old genealogies through oral tradition via interviews in the U. S., Canada, and Ireland and to receive from its members information when they discover where their surnames attach to existing genealogical lines. This is a time consuming and expensive process which is impossible for many people. They further state they publish their findings as an aid to your search. I am not familiar with this society, but will send this to anyone who wants it for $2.00. Seems like a good idea, but I am simply not aware of this society other than this pamphlet.
