Irish Families Genealogy Project
Seven Counties now with color maps. Now on the presses we are adding color maps to these Irish Counties: Tipperary; Cavan and Leitrim. These counties are added to: Galway; Dublin; Donegal; Limerick; and Clare which have 19th century maps in color. These are detailed maps, that can help in finding your way when researching ! Each map is displayed prominently on the cover of the county book it represents.
These books are part of the 34 volume set, the ‘Irish Families Project’ which covers every county in Ireland. All counties are in stock and available at: www.Irishroots.com
I am also adding a new blog from our Irish Hedge School pages at: http://bit.ly/ecXxy7
Much more to come ! -Mike O’Laughlin, session leader, Irish Hedge School

age 14-20 to Australia from the Poor Law Work
Houses in Ireland during the famine. A quick
search of the web will bring up several web sites and
records of individuals involved. We’ll have more on
