* FIND MY PAST

Limerick Children’s Court is one of many featured in the Irish Petty Sessions Court registers 1828-1912 (just add the filter “Limerick City Children” next to where it says “browse court” on the search form). The Petty Sessions handled the bulk of lesser legal cases, and were presided over by unpaid Justices of the Peace, who often had no legal training. Justice was summary and swift, and regularly saw controversial outcomes. Every record includes a transcript plus an image of the original entry. The detail included in the records varies, but may include your ancestor’s name and address, the date they were in court, and whether they were a witness, complainant, or defendant. The image may contain extra information, such as details of the offence, verdict and sentence.

 Tuesday 30 June 2015 – we’re very pleased to announce the launch today of Crew Lists of the British Merchant Navy – 1915, a collaborative project between the National Maritime Museum and the National Archives highlighting the contribution of the Merchant Navy in the First World War.
For the first time ever, all the surviving crew lists of the British Merchant Navy from the year 1915 have been transcribed and the information made available to search online for free. These crew lists contain the details for around 39,000 voyages, including the names and personal details of over 750,000 seamen.  (Courtesy of The Genealogical Society of Qld)

* IGP... IRELAND GENEALOGY PROJECTS ARCHIVE...



Of special note this month is a new project we began a month ago. We
are transcribing ledgers for funerals from J.& C. Nichols, Ltd.
Dublin. Some of the deceased were sent to other counties, so this is a
great source for someone trying to find out where a relative or
ancestor was buried. Prior to the date we started with (late 1919),
the ledgers are at the National Archives of Ireland. We are very
pleased that IGP has been allowed to share these with researchers.
Because multiple locations are listed - we have this set of files
under the *Ireland* heading.

* IRISH FAMILY HISTORY FOUNDATION
New Catholic baptismal records for Belfast
We are pleased to announce the addition of almost 9,000 new Catholic baptismal records! These records from Sacred Heart Belfast, St Mary's Belfast and St Vincent de Paul Belfast cover the years 1890 to 1930. Click the link below for more details...

County Antrim Sources

These baptismal records are of great use for family history research, containing the names and address of the parents and the names of the sponsors. The entries often contain details of the later marriage of the child; in a number of instances this event took place outside of Ireland, in Britain, Canada, New Zealand or the United States.
