The April issue of Irish Lives Remembered has been published and is now available to view or download (free).

This month's issue genealogy focus is on County Roscommon. Among the fifteen pages dedicated to family history in this area is an overview of research in the county, a feature about the surnames of the Roscommon, and extensive coverage of the holdings of local archives and repositories.

The Morpeth Roll, now free to view on Ancestry, also receives in-depth consideration, and those with Australian/Tasmanian connections will be interested to read the feature about Tasmanian Police Records. There's also scrutiny by photo historian Jayne Shrimpton of a stylish wedding photograph taken in Kilkenny in 1933 and the first of a three-part series on samplers stitched by Irish schoolgirls.

In addition to tales of personal family history research, adverts for courses and tours taking place in this year of the Gathering, and much more, it's another good read from the Irish Lives Remembered team.
