100,000 headstone photos: major milestone reached by Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives (IGP-Archives)

There's big news from Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives as the 100,000th headstone photo was uploaded to the IGP Headstone Project. All the photographs and acccompanying transcriptions were donated and uploaded by volunteers and are made available via the site free of charge. It's a terrific achievement by the team. See the Headstone Project home page for the county by county menu.

Below are the headstone and other genealogy items added to the archive in the last two weeks.
