They have information on sources for genealogical research in the county, and they can help you in tracing your ancestors via their comprehensive genealogical database. Their web-site also includes a fascinating local history section, including a massive archive of articles taken from the Leinster Express newspaper during the time leading up to and during the Great Famine.
There is also a heritage trail for the 1798 Commemoration. This Site has been produced by Kildare County Council 1798 Commemoration Committee, in association with Local Communities throughout County Kildare.
For a taste of Kildare's heritage try the Athy Heritage Centre pages. The Centre opened in April 1998, and the development of their web-site is still in its early stages. The Centre traces the history and heritage of Athy from its origin to the development of the modern town. It uses a combination of artefacts, interactive displays and video presentation to tell the story of Athy, "The Town on the Marches".
