Kate Press: Wolfe/Woulfe/Nash Family and Cork Reference Material Check out this wonderful site by Kate Press!  Kate and her family have been researching Munster, especially West Limerick and co Cork for over 50 years.  Kate and her co-author, Valerie Thompson, have published a book, entitled "West Limerick Families Abroad."   A great 'introduction for 'all undertaking Irish research.'  It contains a slew of material and is a 'reference for immigrant and convict ancestors'   
Some of the information that can be obtained at Kate's site:
