With the flurry of St Patrick’s Day activity around free or reduced-price access to Irish research websites, we failed to report another type of celebration: the release of stories from the Irish Genealogical Research Society (IGRS) 80th Anniversary Archive.
The first tranche (“slice” or “portion”) of the stories is now available: www.irishancestors.ie/?page_id=8251.
I hope reading what others have written will inspire you to begin a story about your own ancestor(s).
Whether or not it’s published is not a critical factor. Just imagine your grandchildren or great-grandchildren reading your story 50 years from now. Priceless!
