NIFHS completes Carnmoney headstone transcriptions

The Newtownabbey Branch of the North of Ireland Family History Society will launch The Corner Graveyard, a cd of more than 1,000 headstone transcriptions from Carnmoney Parish Church graveyard 2, on Monday 8 September at 7pm.

Graveyard 2 dates from 1921 and is bordered by Church Road and Prince Charles Way.

This is the third cd of transcriptions from Carnmoney to be published, and completes the set. It joins Carved in Stone, which was published in 1994 by the Belfast branch and relates to the graveyard (1) encircling the church, and The Hidden Graveyard, which was published in five years ago and carries transcriptions from graveyard 3, which is on the opposite side of the road to the church.

Visitors are welcome to attend the launch at Glengormley High School’s drama theatre. After the launch on Monday, the cd will be available to purchase from nifhs.org.
