  1. John Grenham! Things are looking up Margaret.

    The sooner these records are on irishgenealogy.ie the better

    Just a note to say that as far as I know, nothing new has developed regarding the Cork Ancestral Project digitized church records. It goes on and on.

    Margaret, the pressure from you and John Grenham plus maybe all the Ministry of Tourism’s horses and men must have caused somebody to crack.

    Look!

      Hi Susan,

      No, this expensive facility has been in operation for awhile. We want the North Parish records and the other records which have been digitized by the Cork Ancestral Project, Cork Co. Council (paid for by the tax payer) to be put online and made available free of charge to the public by the Cork County Council. We are waiting to see what Cork County Council provides. Apparently, something is to be unveiled soon.

      Regards,
      Margaret Jordan

    A very well written piece by John Grenham. The sooner these are available on Irish Genealogy and NOT a commercial site, the better.
