Autumn edition of Irish Genealogy Matters newsletter published

The latest edition of Irish Genealogy Matters has been published and is free to download (click the image below) from the website.

It brings plenty of news from around the Irish Family History Foundation's network of genealogy & heritage centres, most of whom transcribe and upload local records to the RootsIreland database.

A run-down of the 110,000 records to have joined during the database during the course of this year is provided. There are news of recent events in Wicklow and Kilkenny, and announcements of an Emigration Symposium to be held in Garvagh, County Derry, on Saturday 28 October, involving members of the IFHF, and an upcoming online genealogy course from the Ulster Historical Foundation starting in November. The digital release of County Kildare's Grand Jury records is also covered, as is the launch next year of an important new book.
