A fresh edition of New Irish Genealogy Resources has been
published today. 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 nine years from January
2011 to March 2020.
It's been a golden period for Irish family
historians, with new records appearing online almost every week. The
benefit of my ebook is that all the releases are noted in it, with a
brief description and links to where each collection can be accessed,
online or offline.
New Irish Genealogy Resources 2020 doesn'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.
Take a look at this free 7-page sample (2Mb) from the 2011-2015 ebooklet.
The 2020 edition has 130 pages (up from 102 in 2019). In recognition of
the coronavirus pandemic that has turned the lives of many upside down,
the new edition includes a selection of podcasts and videos likely to be
of interest to Irish family historians who may be self-isolating. It
wraps up at just under 9Mb.
*As with previous editions, I can't guarantee that I've included each and every
record release during the last nine years, 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 releases.
