Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives: June's updates

June's delivery of donated materials to Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives includes transcribed headstones from six burial grounds across five counties, and a collection of marriage register records from two Church of Ireland and one Presbyterian congregations in County Fermanagh. As always, these have been gathered by volunteers – researchers like you and me – and are made available free of charge.

The team is always looking for more volunteers, whether they enjoy days out in the fresh air taking photos of headstones, or prefer to be indoors transcribing registers or other materials that may help others identify their ancestors.

There's no pressure on IGPA volunteers; each does as much or as little as suits their own circumstances and their access to genealogical sources. If helping this important free archive continue to thrive is something that matters to you, why not check out the site to find out more.
