Major Dublin directories collection on Origins.net

Irish Origins, part of Origins.net, has announced a new complete run of Thom's Irish Almanac and Official Directory for Dublin on its site from 1844-1870, with a considerable amount of new directory and almanac material to be uploaded in the near future for the city, covering the period from 1636-1900. In total there will be 176 editions online when the collection is complete. This will includes a substantial amount of editions of The Gentleman and Citizen's Almanack (Watson's) and The English Registry and Wilson's Dublin Directory from 1729-1844.

For more on what is quite a major development for the site, visit www.origins.net/help/aboutio-dublindirs.aspx.

There is also a 20% discount on offer just now for Hallowe'en - just use the code Hall2012 (expires midnight November 7th 2012).
