More improvements to RootsIreland's search facility has announced another major improvement to the search facility for its database. Researchers can now search using the names of baptismal sponsors, marriage witnesses and burial informants.

The search facility has been subject to huge advances in the last year or so. It used to be, sorry to say, among the most restricted and irritating to use, demanding information that researchers were using the database to discover (!) but it is now as good as any you'll come across.

You can now search using just a surname, adding extra information, if you have any, as you go, ie county, parent's names, or narrowing the search by years, and so on.

If you haven't looked in on RootsIreland for a while, this could be a good time to check out these improvements, and see all the new records, while you're at it (they tot up to more than 20 million).

There's also a special offer available to those taking out a monthly or annual subscription: a one-third discount. This runs to the end of the month. Details here.
