There is a huge archive of Office of Public Works Papers at the National Archives 1848 to 1935. I haven't gone to see them yet but it looks interesting.

Liverpool Catholics 1767

Postby Rocker » Sun Jul 21, 2013 2:03 pm

I look in on a genealogical site and found this very useful link giving names of Catholics in Liverpool in 1767

http://liverpool1767.webs.com/c-e

as there was a movement of seamen between Liverpool and DunLaoghaire it might help someone looking for a link.

Telephone Directory 1913

Postby Rocker » Thu Nov 14, 2013 5:58 pm

I was fascinated by the photo of James Byrne's funeral with Derrindaffderg posted and went looking for Barringtons Solicitors which was the shop in Cumberland Street behind the hearse. They were listed as 14 Cumberland Street. In my search I tumbled on this site

I was looking through that and see Burnets Pharmacy. Is it still there? That was the chemist we used when I was small.

Access to Irish Newspaper Archives is FREE for 24hrs
http://www.irishnewsarchive.com/For one day only, the Irish Newspaper Archives is offering free access to its huge database.

As mentioned in a post earlier in the week, the online archive, which holds titles from the 1700s to the present day, has been undergoing a major redevelopment in the last five or six months. While the site has been upgraded with many new features, scanning of old publications has continued. Among the most recent uploads are editions from the Cork Examiner, Skibbereen Eagle and Fermanagh Herald.

You can view the publications held in the database via this nifty county-by-county map.

Here are the codes to gain free access until 11am Saturday 15 February:

Enjoy yourselves!

Johndle:

The 'curse a hell on ya' in the very nicest possible way. I got onto that
site and couldn't leave it. I am up to me oxters in printed matter and
now have to sort it into proper date order! When I was on it I was wishing
it had The Herald, The Irish Times and The Evening Mail. I would never
have gotten to bed if they were all on the site. I don't think there are
any archives for The Mail which is a shame because it was a great paper.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the tip and the link.
