Irish Genweb Indexing Project

Another voluntary effort at making genealogy accessible is being worked on by volunteers at www.irelandgenweb.com.

The WorldGenWeb Project was created in 1996 and the IrelandGenWeb Project started in 1997.

I quote “The IrelandGenWeb Project is committed to providing FREE access to resource and reference information for Ireland. Our dedicated group of volunteers (some local and some throughout the world) are active in Irish research – each hosting a country that they have a research interest in.”

What will save Irish Genealogy is the efforts of volunteers worldwide. There is so much data available and it time we got past the myth that the fire in 1922 is the reason for the lack of access to genealogical data. The Irish diaspora is using LDS microfilm from these LDS centres around the world and making the information available to us all. Thank you to everyone concerned.
