One of the most interesting projects that the
CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY
has been involved in, and there have have been numerous,
is to do with the contributions collected to support the Papal Army.
The concentration is for 1860, with so many names being transcribed
by the diaspora world wide.
This will prove to be invaluable for those researching ancestors,
as to where they were, what their status was and what parish.
Once this project is completed, you will be able to read about it's launch here.
It will be available to all online thanks to the efforts of the volunteers,
Clare Roots Society and friends, and the Clare Library.
Thanks to Irish Roots and Clara Hoyne, secretary of CRS,
