Here are some recent additions I have made to the Finding Irish Family: Research Aids page of this blog.
Happy Hunting Everyone!
Irish Emigration Database: I mentioned this database last year when it first went live, and over time they have greatly improved it. If you are looking for information on Irish ancestors who emigrated from Ireland in the 19th century, then take a look here. The database is freely searchable.
Also, if you want to view photographs of the replica famine ship, then view my post "The Dunbrody, A Famine Ship".
Deceased Online: This website is looking to become the one stop shop for cemetery records in the UK and The Republic of Ireland*. Do check out their database listing to see which cemeteries are now included. You may conduct a free search; viewing records is on a pay-per-view basis. *Note: a check of their database reveals that it does not currently include any cemeteries in Ireland, but they are committed to adding records on a regular basis, so this will be one to watch.
Buildings of Ireland: via the website of The National Inventory of Architectural Heritage (NIAH). The work of the NIAH involves identifying and recording the architectural heritage of Ireland, from 1700 to the present day. In my opinion, projects such as this are always worth a look because you never know what you might learn from them in terms of your ancestors' experience of living in Ireland.
