Just a reminder that we have posted over 30 blogs with original records not otherwise available on-line. These are in our ‘Small Sources’ series which lists almost 3,400 individuals from 12 counties. These lists are items we have found among manuscript sources during our research. Most are too small to be included in the big data-sets being put on-line by the major companies, but must nevertheless be useful to some of you out there. We have therefore extracted the names and made them available in our blogs. It is interesting that the biggest reactions we have had have been to some of the smallest sources. For instance, No. 28 below is a list of only 14 labourers in Muff, Co. Donegal, but we had messages from 2 different people who could make a probable connection to individuals on this list. We would be delighted to hear of any other connections you might make with individuals listed in these sources. The Blog title, and a link to each, is below.
