Irish Lives Remembered May edition now available

The May edition of the free Irish Lives Remembered magazine is now available online, with a focus this month on Wexford.

There's a look at the Dunbrody Famine Ship and the Irish Emigrant Database, the magazine travels back in time 50 years to Jack Kennedy's visit to his ancestral home in Wexford, Shauna Hicks looks at the Irish in 19th century Tasmania, there's the second part of an exploration of Irish schoolgirl samplers, a programme for the forthcoming Irish Genealogy Summer School and archaeological conference in Cork, and a preview of a Kelly clan gathering - all suitably led by a cover depicting a woman who hasn't twigged that her bumpy armrest is actually the President of the United States!

Completely free, the magazine is available to view online, or to download in PDF format, from


My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the Old Parish Registers, starts May 15th - see Time to smash a few brick walls...!
