Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The Findmypast.ie blog had a post about the Registry of Deeds in Ireland. Fiona tells us what the Registry of Deeds is and who you may find recorded in the documents.

Along similar lines Eneclann had a post called “The Quagmire of Administrative Districts.” They provide a bit of history, definitions and how they will help you with your Irish research.

The National Library of Ireland blog had a post called “Improving access to the Lawrence Collection.” This is a collection of photographs held by the National Library. You can view some of them on the National Library website or at Ancestry.com. The NLI blog post provides a history of the collection, how it is catalogued and what you may find in the collection.

The Irish Story blog had a post called “The Irish Story archive on the Easter Rising” where they provide links to different stories relating to the 1916 Easter Rising.

The British GENES blog had a post called “RootsIreland protests continue.” It sounds like RootsIreland better start listening to their customers as this story doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.

The Scottish Military Research Group blog has a post called “Who was Captain Morley, late of the Light Brigade, U.S. Army and Ayrshire Yeomanry?” They are looking for information on the date of the poster found in the archives.
