NEW IN THE IGP ARCHIVES FOR JUNE






Of special note this month is a new project we began a month ago. We are transcribing ledgers for funerals from J.& C. Nichols, Ltd.
Dublin. Some of the deceased were sent to other counties, so this is a great source for someone trying to find out where a relative or
ancestor was buried. Prior to the date we started with (late 1919),
the ledgers are at the National Archives of Ireland. We are very
pleased that IGP has been allowed to share these with researchers.
Because multiple locations are listed - we have this set of files
under the *Ireland* heading.

INVITE TO BOOK LAUNCH... CLARE AND THE GREAT WAR by JOE POWER




YOU'RE INVITED





 JOE POWER

author

of


Clare and the Great War

 invites you

to the
book launch
at the

 Civic Rooms, 
Water Park, Ennis

 on

 Friday 10 July at 7.30 pm.





"Aristocrats and itinerants, unionists and nationalists, Catholics and Protestants – the Great War united thousands of Clare men and women to a cause for which many of them would go out to fight and die. Their motives varied from a sense of duty to 'king and country' to concern about the fate of 'poor Catholic Belgium'; from mercenary motives, fuelled by poverty, to the moral duty to fight for civilization against the 'savage Huns'. Some followed 'Redmond's call' to secure Home Rule, while others enlisted for sheer adventure. The work attempts, for the first time, to understand what really happened in County Clare during the Great War, how its economic and political life was radically transformed during this terrible conflict, and how the contribution of those who gave their lives was largely written out of history.' - See more at: http://www.thehistorypress.co.uk/index.php/thp-ireland/clare-and-the-great-war-pb.html#sthash.9D1wRBWa.dpuf "

GUESS WHO'S COMING TO ENNIS? 3RD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY






GUESS WHO'S COMING TO ENNIS?


The third International family history conference “Diaspora of the Wild Atlantic Way” will take place in Ennis on the 23rd to 24th September 2016. Hosted by the Clare Roots Society, who are celebrating their 10th year in 2016, the keynote speaker will be renowned author and genealogy blogger Dick Eastman from the USA, who is making his first trip to Ireland. Dick is the author of Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter which is published daily. He has been involved in genealogy for over 30 years

Another significant speaker will be the famous Scottish genealogist and author of over 30 books, Dr. Bruce Durie who is currently a Fulbright scholar in the USA researching migration. He will speak on Irish emigration to Scotland. Dr. Durie is Honorary Fellow in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies within the Centre for Lifelong Learning at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

Author and genealogist John Grenham will also be a guest speaker at this two day event. He has researched, written and lectured on genealogy in Ireland for over thirty years. His book, Tracing your Irish Ancestors, now in its 4th edition, has been the bible for genealogists worldwide tracing their Irish roots.

Further speakers will be announced in the next few months.

The main theme of the conference is the movement and migration of people from the west coast counties of Ireland to Scotland, Britain and beyond. The event will bring together experts and family historians from around the world to share their knowledge and expertise. The Society has diaspora members in Europe, America and Australia and beyond and welcome them to this social and informative gathering. The conference will appeal to people from any of the counties along the western seaboard and throughout Ireland whose families emigrated in search of greater opportunity.

Conference organisers are building on their past experience and are giving plenty of advance notice as we welcome overseas visitors to our event. A new dimension to next year’s event is the co-location of a lifestyle event that will feature regular talks and demonstrations in an exhibition area alongside the conference. For further details contact secretary @clareroots.org.
