I have been reviewing genealogy records from my Irish ancestors and was reminded of this interesting site: dúchas.ie (duchas.ie) which features Irish School Records. These records are not quite what you’d expect. Let’s look.
Using Local Genealogy Resources
With summer here, making day trips to scout out genealogy resources is much easier. These local libraries and genealogy associations have items that are not available online and are focused on the places that you are interested in exploring. Let’s look.
National Archives of Ireland
One of my dreams is to have the time, money, and luxury of researching in person at the National Archives of Ireland. Wouldn’t it be fun to have that opportunity? While that is not something that I can do today, the National Archives of Ireland has created a genealogy site that has many online records to explore. Let’s look.
One of the treasures for those of you with Swedish ancestors is the Sweden Household Examination Records. The pastor of the parish originally kept these records to track the family’s that lived in the parish as well as to track and evaluate their religious knowledge. For the genealogist, these records are great substitutes for census records. Let’s look.
Happy 4th of July 2022
