Irish Family History Society Journal digitisation

From the Irish Family History Society (

Irish Family History Society adds online access to their historic journals for members

The Irish Family History Society Journal has been published annually since 1985, shortly after the Society was established. Many are now out print, particularly those from the early years. The back issues of the Journal have now been digitised by Eneclann in memory of the late John Heueston, past Chairman and Treasurer . The first tranche of 10 issues from 1985 to 1994 is now available in the Members’ area on More will be added in early 2015.

Mary Beglan, Irish Family History Society’s Chairman said “ I am delighted that these Journals are now available in digitised form for the benefit of our members, and I thank Fiona Fitzsimons of Eneclann for her kind gift of digitising the Journals in memory of the late John Heueston. The broad range of articles dating from 1985 will be of great interest to our members”

Based in Ireland, the Irish Family History Society was established in 1984 and has a worldwide membership. The Society holds regular meetings and publishes an annual Journal as well as News Sheets for its members. Please visit the Society’s website for more information.
