Irish Genealogy Toolkit has
published an 93-page e-book providing brief details of all the brand-new
and upgraded Irish genealogy records released in the six years from January
2011 and December 2016.
It's been a golden period for Irish family
historians, with new records appearing online almost every week. No
researcher is going to complain about that, but keeping up with such a
pace of delivery can be demanding.
This booklet is an update of the 2011-2015 e-book, with an extra ten
pages of listings. In order to keep the overall pdf size similar to
last's years version, I've condensed the text of some of the original
entries and reduced the size of pictures to some extent. Other than
these changes, the e-book is pretty much unaltered in design and layout,
which feedback tells me was suitably easy to work around.
As previously, I can't guarantee that I've included each and every
potentially new resource, but I think I've caught most in my net. All
of the collections featured in the e-booklet were the subject of posts
on my blog Irish Genealogy News at the time of their release.
Irish Genealogy Records Released 2011-2016
won't tell you what to do with all these new toys (it's not a 'how-to'
guide... this website does that job!). It simply sets out all the new,
mainly online, records at your disposal.
It's arranged by type of
resource ie Census, Newspapers, Military Records etc, and also
county-by-county, becoming a handy aide-memoire of recently-available
resources useful to Irish family historians.

The complete 93-page e-booklet is available as a pdf download (it's just over 8Mb).
