New website & crowdfunding drive
The newly upgraded HistoricGraves website
The Historic Graves team has unveiled its upgraded website after a week or so with a limited offline presence.

It was worth the wait. The refreshed site has a modern theme and is more visually attractive than the one it has replaced, and while navigation is more clearly signposted, the new magazine layout of the page invites greater browsing.

In the last seven years, Historic Graves has worked with more than 500 community to survey one quarter of all Irish historic graveyards. That's quite an achievement, and it is reflected in the fact the site is now the number one destination for researchers seeking the final resting place of their ancestors from Ireland.

While you're exploring the site, be sure to drop by the Donate page and consider dipping into your pocket to help crowdfund more graveyard surveys. No matter how small your donation (they all add up), the generosity of genealogists allows the team to start new projects which benefit the family and local history community.
