IGRS 80th anniversary story archive project

From the Irish Genealogical Research Society (

The IGRS celebrates its 80th anniversary this year and we would like to create a special archive of stories to mark the event. We are inviting anyone, not just members, to choose a favourite Irish-born ancestor and tell their story. You can find details of the project, a sample story and rules for submission via this web-page We hope to achieve at least 80 submissions to match our anniversary and have already received some interesting stories since launching the project at WDYTYA.
