Connecting People With Their Irish Roots

Memorials of the Dead, the collected works. Edited by Brian Cantwell

Twenty-five years work went into recording 67,000 people from over 500 cemetery sites around the country.
This reproduction of the well-known memorials will add a new dimension to genealogy for researchers of Irish ancestors especially those living abroad. This painstaking and intensely detailed work was carried out between the years 1966 to 1990. Any one who has made an effort to trace a head stone in an overgrown graveyard can easily appreciate the toil and effort which was required to complete this “monumental” task.
What are displayed on the CD are scanned versions of the actual pages of Mr. Cantwell’s work.
The indexes include indexes of surnames, of occupations, professions and trades. There is also an index of locations and maps of the cemeteries. The Eastern region of the country is mainly featured covering the counties of, Dublin, Wicklow, Wexford, with Galway (Kilmacduagh), Clare (West), Cork, Kildare and Sligo (St. John’s) also covered.
There are thirteen pages of database showing by County, the names of cemeteries and their page numbers for quick finding.
This CD is a valuable tool as well as a fine tribute to a man who devoted many years to his abiding love of family history research.
The cost is Euro 69.90 from Eneclann
