A bundle of Xmas gifts from Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives

An exciting mixed bundle of photos and records has been delivered early this festive season from Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives. It holds some real gems that may just knock down a brick wall for some lucky researchers.

Sample section from rental documents of
teneants of Marcus Goodbody, dated 1893.
Discovered in letter to Lawrence Mealy of
Tristernagh Demesne, ancestor of the
Contributor. Photo courtesy IGPArchives.

As always, these gifts come from volunteers who freely donate their time by tramping over graveyards, pencil and camera in hand, or passing on their own discoveries in the possibility and hope that their contributions will help other family historians learn more about their Irish ancestors. Why not consider becoming part of this team in the new year or even over the holiday?
