Long consideredMoreWith comprehensive indexing and 22 full-color illustrations, this deluxe paperback edition explores the genealogical traditions of the ancestors of the Considine family for over a millennium before they took the surname Mac Consaidin. Long considered lost, these are the genealogical secrets of the Celtic Iron Age and Migration Period. To tell this story, the author has accessed the mass of information preserved in the Irish Language since the 7th century in Irelands most important genealogical manuscripts. These precious documents had been hidden away in a handful of collections since the physical and cultural genocide of the Gaeil in the 17th century, and were therefore inaccessible until recently to almost all Irish, their diaspora, and their genealogists. Happily, these Irish Language manuscripts have finally been set in type and published after waiting between 350 and 850 years. Because this book uses and translates into English this ancient but newly-available genealogical tradition as it relates to the Considine family, it is the first of its kind about the Considines in the modern era.
