How well do you know your local genealogy resources? I help people on Facebook, Twitter, G+, and Pinterest, find resources to document their ancestors. I am inviting you to a PIN HUNT. Send an email so you can pin helpful resources to this community board. Include a link to your Pinterest Profile so I can add you. If you know of local resources that are not online (library, archives, etc.), please send an e-mail including the repository. I will create a pin! Thank you!
People searching their family tree will be pleased to hear that soon they will have free online access to more than 1,000 Irish parish records from the 1740s right up to the 1880s. The huge array of records will be available to anyone anywhere in the world thanks to the National Library of Ireland, who recently announced their plans to digitalise the records and publish them on the internet.
"If all else fails, I will retreat up the valley of Virginia, plant my flag on the Blue Ridge, rally around the Scotch-Irish of that region and make my last stand for liberty amongst a people who will never submit to British tyranny whilst there is a man left to draw a trigger." - George Washington at Valley Forge
