Finding Your Irish Ancestors

After having a long break from looking for my Ancestors in Northern Ireland i have started my research again. Looking back to where i was before i can see the mistakes that i made. The number one mistake was not recording the source of the information fully. This has resulted in me going over old grounds which can have the added benefit of finding something that i missed the first time. These are some of the site's that i am finding useful in my research.
