A Bit More of the Irish

ARTICLES

The Internet is still awash with the news of the launch of FindMyPast.ie - and why not?  Everyone who's interested is thrilled, it seems.  Even those who have no direct genealogical interest in the country may still be interested in this graphic of the 'Impact of the Irish' - as well as this article on the Irish ancestry of the US President.  Whilst we're at it, there is also this general piece on 'How to Trace Your Roots in Ireland'.

The BBC's weekly collection of 'History Headlines' can be found here.  Look out for the item on the death of the oldest surviving combatant of WWI.

A week's historical holidaying in York is currently on offer from The Historical Association - see here.
