After more than 13 years online, Irish Genealogy Toolkit is undergoing a facelift.

The process is taking some time. I started with 224 pages to convert. There are 16 left (August 2022), so the end is now in sight. Please bear with me during the ongoing transition.

I hope you like the fresh new design and have become accustomed to the revised layout.
