Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives: a bumper summer package of volunteer-contributed records

Summer makes the job of clambouring around graveyards taking photographs a little more enjoyable, so it's no real surprise that the latest two-week package from the volunteer team at IGP Archives is jam-packed with headstone photos and memorial transcriptions. Eleven burial grounds have been visited, and the number of names referenced in the resulting files tot up to more than 3,000. In addition, there are about 2,800 transcriptions from church registers and workhouse records.

Deaths at St Martin's Orphanage,
St Otteran's / Ballinaneeshagh, Waterford.
