IRELAND GENEALOGY PROJECTS (IGP) DOES IT AGAIN...





"Our volunteers have just finished the Irish Constabulary men who joined in 1849. These were transcribed first and proofread before they were put online. Hope it helps someone!"

 http://www.igp-web.com/IGPArchives/index.htm

 Genealogy would be all the poorer, and so much harder for us to research, if we didn't have the untiring work of so many unheralded volunteers at our fingertips.

Thank you to all at IGP!

It’s not the easiest thing to do to write seven things about yourself and what I love… but, here goes…in my own way…seven lines.

                                    SEVEN LINES OF ME

 A love of books is in my blood, for writing and words form my soul..

to reach out to people, and share in their dreams, I’ve made my lifetime goal…

I love the raindrops on my face and the clear blue skies of spring…

and rainbows with promises of elusive dreams and children who laugh and sing.

I’ve a passion for fabrics and needles and thread... and flowers that dance in the breeze.

I’m also intrigued by those who have passed, just wish I could find them with ease!

So here’s my offer to you, a glimpse of my life, it’s simply a minuscule tease…
