The first such Document of the Month is of prime relevance to Irish genealogists. Exactly 90 years old, it is the order, signed by Oscar Traynor, confirming the plan for Anti-Treaty forces to detonate mines at the Four Courts, June 1922, the home of Ireland's Public Records Office.

The Military Archives feature provides good context to the document. And makes you want to weep!
