Yes, I know St. Patrick’s Day isn’t until tomorrow, but I wanted to share some news about the National Library of Ireland in Dublin.
For those who already know their Irish ancestors native county or for anyone who would like to learn more about Irish history, the National Library of Ireland has just done a major update of its website.
The library has many resources to help with Irish research, but remember, not all of it is digital.
Check out the eResources. Many, but not all ,collections in this category must be viewed in-person in the library.
However, the National Library of Ireland is also building its Digital Collections:
Although I have no Irish ancestry, I did visit this beautiful library once, in person, a few years ago. If you have the opportunity, it is well worth a visit, whether for historical or genealogical purposes.
The NLI issued a press release about all the launch of its new website.
Be sure to check out Donna Moughty’s Irish Family Roots. She specializes in Irish research and wrote an excellent blog post about the newly launched website.
Chris Paton, who writes Scottish GENES also wrote about the new NLI website.
Enjoy a Happy St. Patrick’s Day Tomorrow!
