"Ireland's most active genealogical society"
Index to The Genie Gazette
The Society has published monthly newsletters since April 1991 and from 1993, two per month until the end of 1996.
Although ‘The Genie Gazette’ was first published in 1996, only two issues appeared until it replaced the other monthly newsletters in January 1997 and it continued in production until the end of 2005 when it was incorporated into the Society’s current newsletter ‘Ireland’s Genealogical Gazette’.
Below you can access each issue of ‘The Genie Gazette’ from 1996 to 2005 in pdf format by clicking on the name of the month concerned.
The images have been created by scanning the original paper copies, however, in a handful of cases where the paper copies were missing, it was necessary to recreate the paper copy from the file held on computer disc. The conversion to a more modern format may have altered the style of the font slightly or the margins etc, however, the content remains unaltered as published.
This collection of newsletters and indeed, the later issues of ‘Ireland’s Genealogical Gazette’ provide an excellent resource for persons researching the history and development of genealogy in Ireland over the past sixteen or so years, including the various campaigns on legislation and public policy issues relating to genealogy, heraldry and general heritage matters.
The listing of the contents of each issue below will be expanded, where required, over the coming weeks to provide for ease of access to the information etc. This is a work in progress and will take some time to complete.
