A message from co-leader Maggie N to those working on Kerry profiles.
Are you working on Kerry folks? I am Maggie N. and welcome any WikiTree members. 100 percent of my Irish roots come from County Kerry, specifically West Kerry. I have researched my Irish roots for over 30 years and I want to share what has helped me. Before the internet, I was snail-mailing the National Library of Ireland for sources on my family roots. The church records were not even on microfilm so I wrote to parishes individually. Two years ago, I completed the Ireland series by Sherry Irvine at the Pharos Tutors Institute.
Today, we are blessed that Ancestry and Find My Past have indexed many church records for their databases. We are also indebted to the National Library of Ireland for uploading the Roman Catholic church records at their website. I have had great success on the Government of Ireland's site Irish Genealogy as well.
Not all Irish genealogy website have Kerry indexes or records. I will only include resources on the main Kerry page relating to finding your Kerry folks. If you need assistance or tips for finding your Kerry-born ancestor or find an ancestor on these sites, do not hesitate to message me.

What we do

Ireland Project - County Teams
A PDF file giving an introduction to inform you of the role of the county teams, to explain the structure of the teams and to let you know what is expected of you as a member. This PDF is hosted on the Google Drive of David Loring so if you have any problems accessing it please contact him. The PDF is downloadable from the viewer.
Whilst familiarizing ourselves with Styles and Standards and 'standard' Wikitree 'best practice' goals such as merging duplicate profiles, sourcing, cleaning and adding biographies, linking profiles to the wider family tree and general Profile Improvement, as a member of the Munster Team you will be assisting in helping people locate their ancestors in counties of the Province of Munster. There are various ways in which we can do this, some through the sub-projects of the Munster counties and some by providing the framework whereby records are grouped together, categorized, under various aspects such as towns, townlands, parishes, electoral districts and census records etc.
Please remember Communication Before Editing.

Helping as a member

A part of being a member of the Ireland Project and of the Munster Province Team is giving a little bit of your time if possible to tidying up the profiles we oversee as the team. Some of these profiles such as the Unknown Locations and Unsourced need a bit of TLC from the Team members. In particular those that have been orphaned for what ever reason and no longer have a profile manager to watch over them need our attention. Any little bit of time you can spare will be appreciated you may be assured. Resolving sources for unsourced profiles and determining locations of birth and / or death where such information does not currently exist will benefit the whole WikiTree community.
See the Profiles Needing Work link below in the status section for details of what is needing to be done.
For other Sub-Categories for Munster see the main County category for each of the Munster counties. Some examples of the sub-Categories are:
See Ireland Sub-Projects for other Irish projects you might be interested in.
It is highly recommended that you start a One Name Study or more for your surnames. It is a great place to store your research notes, sources such as web sites, books, etc. and a place to connect to other genealogists who are working on that name.

A considerable amount has gone into and is still on going on the determination of the correct townland names and locations and the categorization of these. In order that we present a uniform format for location categories please visit this page for help with creating Geographic Categories for Ireland
Building upon a sound framework of locations we aim to provide as comprehensive as possible a list of resources on the each main County page. Please add any sources for Counties on the main page for the County.
