IRELAND XO NEW SITE: REACHING OUT TO YOU!

     I have been following the Ireland XO (Ireland Reaches Out) initiative on this blog. This project aims to trace those persons who emigrated from Irish parishes, thereby meeting halfway, in effect, the descendants of the Irish Diaspora who are tracing their ancestors back to Ireland. The number of Irish parishes taking part in the project has grown over the past year. Now the project is reaching out to family historians by providing online resources and bulletin boards. The online site is currently a "beta" version, but holds much promise as a prime resource for online Irish genealogy research. Check out the new features via the link below:
