The June 2022 Newsletter is now published on the web site.  It looks back on previous Royal Celebrations and reiterates information about the Workshops, Free Help Sessions and our next meetings. It looks at the development of a digital archive to replace the Irish Records lost in 1922, the 1950 USA Census, and other general and hopefully helpful comments!

Our Free Websites page provides information about a variety of websites that are free to view. If you can recommend any to be added to this list please let us know.
