Author Central Irish Genealogy Resource Link:

New: About the Author
Amazon is launching an app that will be helpful
to researchers on Kindle.  Its a resource that works
on your desktop computer, now adapted for Kindle.
(Based upon existing author direct pages.)

Here is the release I just received from Amazon:

“When readers find a book interesting, they oftentimes look for more
information about the author. We’ve developed a new feature for Kindle
Paperwhite and Kindle Fire HD to help those readers – About the Author.

About the Author gives readers easy access to your photo, biography, and
bibliography so they can learn more about you and your other books, which
are only 60 seconds away.  Readers can tap on any of your books to go to
the Kindle Store.  Also, any time you update your bio or claim a new book
through Author Central, we will update About the Author on Kindle so your
readers have access to the most recent information about you. ”

Better Genealogy Every Day !
One more resource to make finding information easier, and we have
all 60 of our Irish genealogy and history books or so already in the program.
This sounds like one more resource to make our lives easier when researching.
(Most of our titles can be searched online with this program.)
