Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives: September updates

This beautiful headstone is a fine example of the modern
letter cutter's art. It was designed and worked by Ken
Thompson, an internationally respected sculptor and stone
carver, and father of the 12-year-old Katy whose resting
place it marks in Churchtown Graveyard, Co Cork.

Below is a list of the files uploaded to Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives last month. As you can see, they were all packages of headstones – thanks to Ireland having enjoyed a fairly decent summer, I suppose.

As always, the photos and inscriptions were donated to IGPA by volunteers in the hope that they will help researchers learn more about their ancestors and their family's story.
