IMC strengthens regional genealogy services

To strengthen regional genealogy services during and beyond this year's The Gathering, the Irish Manuscripts Commission has donated copies of five of its publications to 16 regional archive services across the island.

The publications are:
  • The Convert Rolls — the calendar of the Convert Rolls, 1703–1838, 2nd edition, edited by Eileen O’Byrne and Anne Chamney with Fr Wallace Clare’s annotated list of converts 1703–78
  • The census of Elphin, 1749, edited by Marie-Louise Legg
  • A Census of Ireland circa 1659 with essential materials from the Poll Money Ordinances, 1660–1661, edited by Séamus Pender with a new introduction by William J. Smyth
  • Court of Claims: Submissions and Evidence, 1663, edited by Geraldine Tallon
  • The Irish Commission of 1622. An investigation of the Irish Administration, 1615–22, and its consequences, 1623–24, edited by Victor Treadwell
