There is a list already on site of books relevant to Torrens genealogy and some of these books also are of interest to others of Bann Valley descent. Other books of relevance to the area will be listed either in that page or here.

Here will be entered details of books and other publications as as they are made known. Many genealogy books are privately printed, so difficult to find. If you know of sources, please let me know.

One book, Kernohan's Kilrea, has been transcribed and is available from this site.
