What's in store from later in the year?

More Roman Catholic records from County Wexford are in the process of being transcribed and will be uploaded to RootsIreland later this year. So, too will another instalment of records for Limerick. are two revelations made in the latest Irish Genealogy Matters, the newsletter of the Irish Family History Foundation, which manages the RootsIreland database and oversees an island-wide network of heritage and genealogy centres.

The newsletter also provides an impressive summary of the records uploaded to the database so far this year. They tot up to more than 100,000 records of different types – a selection of Protestant and Roman Catholic baptisms, marriages and burials; confirmations; census substitutes; and civil births, marriages and deaths – and come from Counties Waterford, Armagh, Cork, Wexford, Galway, Laois and Offaly. The transcribing teams have certainly been busy!

All of these records have, of course, been noted here on Irish Genealogy News as and when they were released, but it's worth checking the summary in case you missed a relevant blogpost.

You'll also be able to find news of developments past, present and future, of developments from around the IFHF centres in the newsletter. Click the image to download the pdf.
