Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives: Early April updates

The last two weeks have seen the files below added to Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives. As always, the photos and accompanying text files of transcribed inscriptions have been freely donated by researchers and are now available to view by other family historians.

Can you help keep a flow of new material arriving at IGPA during the current health crisis? Do you have any photos of headstones in Irish burial grounds stored on your computer or cloud service? Maybe you took them while you were on holiday on the island, or when visiting a graveyard where your ancestors are buried, or as part of a local history project by your home community.

You don't need an image of every single memorial in the cemetery or burial ground. Partial collections are fine, as in the case of Old Shanakyle graveyard, County Clare; these were submitted by Claire Donlon who had just returned from a vacation in Ireland.

You can find out details of how to submit photos to IGP Archives here.
