Irish Quaker Historical Database to join FindMyPast

In my (belated) Preview of 2016 blogpost, I mentioned that Irish Quaker bmd records would be joining FindMyPast in due course. While I still have no scheduled dates for their online debut, the Friends Historical Library Dublin has added a little extra information to its website about what we an expect.

It says that the Irish Quaker Historical Database, which 'contains family records together with details of writings, published or manuscript, by or about individual Quakers', will be joined with 'an extensive collection of manuscript material', and made available on the FindMyPast website before the end of 2016.

See the Quakers In Ireland website for more information about the group's Library and its holdings.

(With thanks to Martha.)
