    I worked a bit on my wife's Irish ancestry and it is very hard. Even for the part of her family history in the US it is very hard. There is much less variation with Irish names than I have seen with my Swedish/Norwegian/English ancestors. I don't believe it would have been possible to find out much about my wife's ancestry if there wasn't a lot of information available from the family. As others have noted it is very difficult to trace Irish ancestry very far back. Several of the comments below blame some combination of civil wars, the British and fires for that. Whether that's true or not I don't know but I did find very little information on ancestry.com that went back much beyond 1900. There were tenant farmer contracts but there is not much beyond the name of a male farmer in those so I don't see how they can be used to reconstruct a family history.

    We know one thing about his ancestors. One of them was a barbarian.

    Fun fact. It's very hard to track pre 1920s Irish ancestry. No we don't all have the same names. O'brien is common here but not that common. I knew maybe 5 people with that name. The country had a civil war in the 1920s and our national courts were burned down, all records of 17th to 19th century Ireland were in there. That means, prison records, birth certs, marriage certs, death certs and legal documents. There have been attempts to retrieve as much of the lost records as we can from London and other Irish locations but most didn't have copies and will be lost forever. I know depressing.

    Don't know why I expected anything less than lazy racism for a Conan video, I was expecting to be pleasantly surprised to learn that Lisa Kudrow knew somehow that the censuses between 1851-1911 were burned

    Well if using jewish methodology then when you think about it then all Irish and Scottish... For those who call themselves celtic are all jewish. 00000000000.0000083486574387620374052345 part jewish but because using mother side then 100% jewish. Thus Elizabeth Warren is 100% American Indian.

    My dad was heavily Irish through his mom. They were Catholic’s living in county Cork. I can only trace one side of my Irish ancestry past 1820, and that was only because I was able to find a baptism record that led me two generations farther back. I does sadden me that I cannot completely trace my Irish heritage but at least I know what county in Ireland they were from. That’s better than nothing.

    The problem with Irish DNA is that it's similar to Welsh DNA so when someone says Irish DNA be careful they could be wrong

    The names thing is all different now. When I spent my summer holidays with my Irish grandparents in the 80s, most the older generation had names like Brendan, Jimmy, Paddy, Mary or Brenda. Now my cousins have given their children names like Jacob, Elijah and Senan. I'd never heard the name Senan before. Elijah I'd only read in the bible. Jacob's more a name you'd expect of an 18th century nonconformist. I don't even know how to pronounce some Irish names. How do you pronounce Aoife or Niamh?

    This is true. I tried tracing my Irish ancestry and like 90% of the women in Ireland in the 1800s were named either Mary or Margaret.
