Two major (and several lesser) works exist, listing the various Torrens families. The two major works have both been transcribed. One is available free from this site. The second is available for a small charge. This page lists not only the books that are in my possession but also those of which I know, but do not possess.

The Minor Family Histories

These minor family histories are listed here in order of publication. Those with a date in violet are ones of which I possess a copy. Green are ones I do not possess - if any reader has a copy, or can obtain one, please contact me.

Reservations on some Family histories

Robert McIlvane Torrence certainly was mislead by believing older researchers whose fabrications had been lent authority by a patina of age. There are clearly some errors in RMT's work and the following pages help explain some of our doubts.

Other books of more general interest

There is a list of books of interest to the Bann Valley (Londonderry, Northern Ireland) genealogist on the Bann Valley site.
