Have you tried Rootsweb? They've got some good tools to use for free before you spend a lot on other services. It may or may not be good solid research, but the research that is good, is documented very well. You can start by googling rootsweb and then they have an intro. Simple plugging in of names and following leads that match what you know. I am still lost in County Antrim, but am flourishing in finding kentish and wexfordians. We've got the likes of Joice in Wexford; McCormick in Antrim (tho I swear my grandad had pointed lower on the map and the Scots want a crack at being in there too). But it is a fun site with much to play with -- I even made a fake connection to impress my son-in-law, but that was in jest. Enjoy.
