* IGP... IRELAND GENEALOGY PROJECTS ARCHIVE...



Of special note this month is a new project we began a month ago. We
are transcribing ledgers for funerals from J.& C. Nichols, Ltd.
Dublin. Some of the deceased were sent to other counties, so this is a
great source for someone trying to find out where a relative or
ancestor was buried. Prior to the date we started with (late 1919),
the ledgers are at the National Archives of Ireland. We are very
pleased that IGP has been allowed to share these with researchers.
Because multiple locations are listed - we have this set of files
under the *Ireland* heading.

County Antrim Sources

These baptismal records are of great use for family history research, containing the names and address of the parents and the names of the sponsors. The entries often contain details of the later marriage of the child; in a number of instances this event took place outside of Ireland, in Britain, Canada, New Zealand or the United States.
