    Welcome to the IGRS forum!

    Users please be civil to each other.

    When posting a query, remember to give as much information as possible: dates, locations, resources already checked.

    All these will help other posters give you a more informative answer.

    It’s great to finally have the Forum.

    Agreed. ūüôā
    Another source of pleasurable distraction!


    Yes when asking a question as Claire says please give as much info. as possible including names,dates, location townland is ideal but at least parish if not county, religion, and an idea of what documentation and searches you have already done.


    Hello everyone

    I joined a few months ago, but this is my first visit to the Forum. I’m looking forward to participating. You never know, I may find a long lost cousin or two along the way.¬†My Dad was from Cork City (the North side).


    Welcome Tri5ia.  You will find there are a fair few of us here from Cork.  What surnames are you researching?



    Hello everyone

    I joined a few months ago to research my ancestors from Cork area, Bandon to be more precise.
    Denis Lynch dob 1879 baptised at Cork and Ross(RC) Innishannon, He Joined the navy and married in Peckham England,
    His Father Richard Lynch 1842 Ballyclogh. Mother Margaret Dennehy 1852.also Ballyclough
    I would like the find the actual records for them and will be going to Ireland mid October to see the church and local area.
    Any suggestions where to find the records.


    I am researching the Grahams of North Wexford/South Wicklow whom I believe may be descended from one Fergus, a Scot who lives in the area from the 1590,s  I would welcome contact from any Graham interested in research in this area.


    Hi Maureen and Graham I think it would be wise to start separate posts with your queries as they may well get overlooked in the Welcome post.  Doing a post with the Surname of interest, the Location and an idea of  relevant Dates all in the heading will get a much better response.


    Hello all!

    I’m new to the IGRS and I’m honoured to be the very first secondary school member, I hope that I’ll be able to contribute something to this society!
