Irish Roots magazine Gift Packs

Irish Roots, Ireland's only independent genealogy magazine, has a great gift idea for the genealogist in your life (or treat yourself...  go on, you know you deserve it).

It's a Gift Pack of four recent issues of the quarterly magazine, bringing you advice on traditional family history research and genetic genealogy; guidance on finding resources for specific areas of Ireland, and on themed collections in the USA and Australia; details of newly released or enhanced record-sets; news and comment from Irish genealogy and local history groups; as well as Q&As and news of developments relating to Irish genealogy.

In other words, it's a useful and informative read for Irish genealogists of all levels of experience.

Prices start from just €25 (within Ireland). Outside of Ireland, prices are UK £25; USA $30; Canada $38; Australia $40. On the order page, you can click switch currency to find your preferred local currency price.

The prices quoted here include worldwide postage and packing costs.





40% discount on offer for Fold 3's 12th anniversary

Fold 3, the military specialist sister site of Ancestry, invites you to join in its 12th anniversary celebrations with a generous 40% discount.

The database provides access to more than 537 million records from numerous military forces. These records, which typically are sourced from the US National Archives, the National Archives of the UK and similar institutions, include the stories, photos, and personal documents of men and women who served in conflicts around the world.

The discount offer will end at 11:59pm MST on Thursday 31 January.

(I'm not sure this discount is available to all researchers. I haven't been told of any restrictions, so I'm sorry if you can't get access to it.  It may be a targetted campaign on certain geographical areas, past customers, or something of that nature.)





30% off the Irish Genealogy Guide and other books/products

The publishers of the US-based Family Tree magazine and The Family Tree series of genealogy guides – my own Irish Genealogy Guide included – has a Christmas offer on its Bestsellers List of books, dvds, cheat sheets, webinars and other resources.

Check out the bargains by clicking the image below to visit the shop.

You'll find my Guide, published last year and still very much up to date, and reduced by 30% from its regular price of US$26.99 to US$18.35. Fantastic value, especially for the target Irish-American researcher who's struggling to work back to Ireland from their immigrant ancestor. It's full of tips and advice to ease what can be a challenging journey.






Irish Times Archive + full online news access: 50% off

Ireland's 'newspaper of record', The Irish Times has a special offer for overseas readers. It gives 50% off the price of either the Standard or Premium digital subscription package for a period of three months. Thereafter, you can either cancel the subscription or pay the regular price.

Both packages provide full access to IrishTimes.com (non-subscribers get access to only a handful of articles a week), to subscriber-only articles, special offers and the Crossword Club. The Premium subscription additionally gives you The ePaper, a digital copy of the print edition.

Importantly for Irish family historians, both these packages give full access to the Irish Times Archive, which includes all editions published since the paper first appeared in 1859.

The regular price of the Standard package is £10, €12, US$12. The discount reduces the cost to £5, €6, US$6.

The regular price of the Premium package is £12, €16, US$18. With the discount, the cost is £6, €8, US$9.
