2013 gets underway for Irish Lives Remembered magazine

The January edition of Irish Lives Remembered has been published and can be downloaded here.

This month's main genealogy resources focus is County Westmeath; any family historian with ancestors in this county will find plenty of helpful information to aid their research. In addition to details about resources and where to find them, there is a three-page article from Helen Kelly MAPGI on tracing Westmeath emigrants to Argentina and features from Cassie Mercer and Shauna Hicks about people from the county emigrating to Australia.

There's also a very detailed guide by John Martin to the surviving records of Railway workers (which reminds me that I must get on with my research into my Grandad's early career at Bagenalstown Station) and several other interesting features in this month's 66-page package.
