Bunratty Graveyard upload makes 6,000th photo

Clare County Library has added the 6,000th photograph to its online Graveyard Inscriptions Collection, with the uploading of Bunratty Graveyard (donated by Clare Roots Society).

The most recent upload joins a collection of photographs of 47 Clare graveyards in Foto, where the text of the transcriptions can be searched for surnames, placenames etc.

Transcriptions for each graveyard can also be read in the Library's Donated Materials Section. This section includes transcriptions of graveyards without photographs, bringing the total numbers of graveyards covered to 125. All these transcriptions and photographs have been donated by individuals, historical and genealogical societies and community groups, and make an outstanding resource for family historians.
