Been a busy time and not had the chance to catch up on my research. Some good news today though! A 10th tranche of records from the Military Service (1916-23) Pensions Collection has been released today by the Military Archives in Dublin: #IrishGenealogy #IrishAncestors

Update from  Claire Santry   @Irish_Genealogy

Genealogy records and headstone photographs from five counties were added to the free, online Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives (IGPA) during April. There’s a summary below.

With Lockdowns easing across the island in the next few weeks, many family historians will be heading straight to the reading rooms of libraries and archives for a serious research fix. But for those who’d like a genealogy fix that helps other researchers, and gets your lungs full of fresh air, why not use that much-needed freedom of movement to photograph the headstones of a nearby burial ground?

Post Service Appointments Books, 1831-1969: full of Irish workers

An Ancestry World Archives Project (WAP) — UK Postal Service Appointment Books, 1737-1969 — was recently updated by Ancestry. No description of what’s been updated has been provided, but this seems a suitable opportunity to bring to researchers attention this potentially useful collection for Irish family historians.

So a trip to the cemetery yesterday to find a headstone of two more relations, not happy about a woman who was there and had a dog not on a lead, the dog was roaming around (not dogs fault) respect should be shown, complaint is going to be made.  Now back to researching!


I have been busy researching a friends family and crashed against a brick wall. I am not giving up!!!!

Below is a summary of new and updated family history record collections for England, Scotland and Wales released by the major genealogy databases over the last week from Irish Genealogy news website, a wonderful resource. 

It will also be useful to anyone carrying out research in those three nations, regardless of the origin of their ancestors.



A fresh edition of New Irish Genealogy Resources has been published. It follows the same popular and easy-to-use format as all previous editions, providing brief details of all* brand-new and upgraded Irish genealogy records released in the ten years from January 2011 to mid-March 2021.



I have been searching for new sites that help with your genealogy search… I found  Family Tree Magazine,

going to spend some time going through the site hopefully it will be of help, check it out.
