Irishgenealogy.ie - A National Treasure.... Over the
last ten years or so Irishgenealogy.ie has become possibly the most important
website for genealogist both professional and amateurs. The recent
inclusion of the Civil Records comprising birth, marriages and death
records with images, has radicalised the genealogical and historical
community. The site initially incorporated church records from mainly
the Dublin and Kerry dioceses including some images, though not a
complete set. Over the years the site has grown from mainly the above
mentioned church records, followed last year by the release of Civil
records with images. The records are subjects to historical time
constraints.The most recent addition to the site is the 2016 Family
History element which is aimed at the educational sector, particularly
secondary schools. The detailed research of two well-known and well
documented individuals in the form of former Taoiseach Sean Lemass and
Sean MacDiarmuda provides a template for how to develop research skills
at an early stage.The site also provides useful research help and links
to other relevant genealogical websites.
Working with the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, we are researching Ireland’s unique DNA. We need volunteers to provide samples for this research. If your 8 great-grandparents came from the same area, we need you.
