For Those Doing Irish Genealogical Research; Antrim Records Now Available; Tyrone and Fermanagh Gravestone Records Now Available

Hi Everyone!

Barb P., a frequent participant at our monthly genealogy program, made me aware that there are some online Irish genealogical records that are available for the areas in Ireland of Antrim, Tyrone and Fermanagh.  These records are being made available by the Irish Family History Foundation (IFHF) and RootsIreland.ie.  You do need to be registered with the group and there is a cost to obtain full access to the material.

If your research has indicated a possible connection to these areas of Ireland then you may want to discover more about these organizations that help Irish genealogical researchers.

If you are not familiar with these organizations just follow their embedded links that follow to their site for further information about them and costs associated to participate and obtain records.
