Welcome to the County Clare Team

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 County Clare Team you will be assisting in helping people locate their ancestors in County Clare. There are various ways in which we can do this, some through the sub-projects of County Clare 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 County Clare 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 section below for details of what is needing to be done.
For other Sub-Categories for County Clare see County Clare. Some examples of the sub-Categories are:
See Irish Roots 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 County Clare
Building upon a sound framework of locations we aim to provide as comprehensive as possible a list of resources on the main County page.
Please add additional resources to the main county page. (See link on the line above)

Team Leader

  • Paddy Waldron - I am here mainly so that I can contribute to the profiles for my pre-1700 County Clare ancestors, such as James Butler (Abt 1648 - 1726), who was probably my GGGGGGGgrandfather, although there is conflicting information in published family histories. I am a former chairperson of the Clare Roots Society and an administrator of the Clare Roots project and of several surname projects at Family Tree DNA.
