Today, I received the latest copy of the Irish Genealogical Research Society (IGRS) newsletter and I was gobsmacked to see that Mr Nick Reddan, FIGRS, has launched a project to index all persons mentioned in the memorials of the Registry of Deeds. This is a worthy and massive task and he is looking for contributors. See Indexing Project for details.
Irish genealogy needs initiatives like this and I commend Mr Reddan for taking it on.
Also mentioned in the IGRS newsletter is that there are plans afoot to move the Registry of Deeds from its present location in Henrietta St., Dublin and to scan all the deeds in its basement. The memorials of the deeds are what you actually see when you go to the Registry of Deeds.
