In the second half of September, four bundles of headstone photos + inscriptions have been uploaded to the Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives. They have all been donated by volunteers and are free to access.

Of particular note is the latest instalment to the Mount Jerome Cemetery collection. It is the 50th such instalment since 2008 from contributor Yvonne Russell, and brings the total number of images in the collection to 40,000. That's a terrific achievement.

The latest additions are:

FERMANAGH Gen. Archives - Headstones Callow Hill/Callowhill Graveyard (additional)
