RootsIreland adds Tyrone and Fermanagh gravestone records

From RootsIreland (www.rootsireland.ie):

Further Tyrone-Fermanagh Gravestones Records Now Available

We have added another 50,000 Gravestone Inscription records for the counties Tyrone and Fermanagh to www.rootsireland.ie

A total of nearly 270 cemeteries have been surveyed – practically all those available for these counties. These records cover cemeteries of all religious denominations, as well as those of municipal authorities.

Unlike birth and marriage records, gravestone records were not comprehensive in scope, but in most cases they offer valuable information for genealogy researchers. In a few cases, the gravestone might provide a vital piece of information – or a family link – that is not available in any other record source.
