This post may be the last update of 2019 from the volunteers at Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives. It's a busy time of year, even for the committed team who contribute their time to extract records, take photos and transcribe inscriptions for the benefit of other Irish family historians, so I hope they'll find plenty to amuse themselves with rather than traipsing around lumpy, overgrown and wet burial grounds.

Those with ancestral connections to Belfast should note that a dedicated page has now been set up for viewing and searching the files of Belfast Cemeteries.
