I'm looking for my roots in Ireland. My great-grandfather is John Brawders (may have been Broadwick - not sure of spelling) left Wexford County in Leinster Provence in 1832. He settled in the Sheyenne, North Dakota area. I wonder if there is any family left in Ireland, or family cemetery there.
The website, has just been relaunched by Ireland's Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. It includes new search functionality and a wealth of information on doing Irish research. The information on this site might provide a good starting point for your research.
