Meath people have travelled the world and settled in many different countries, but all hold a corner of their heart for a little bit of the old country. To remind them of their homeland they gave their new homes names of places in Ireland. There is a Boyne in Michigan and a Navan in Ontario. The Royal County has produced many fine and respected people. The proud name of Meath has been handed down from one generation to the next by the Irish emigrant families.

There are many sources available to those tracing their Meath ancestors. However it is advisable to first familiarise yourself with the type of records which are available and how to use them. There are a number of very good guides to tracing your roots in Ireland and I suggest you read those before and during your search. If you are unfamiliar with Irish family history it is best to contact a professional genealogist.
