Tuesday’s Tips – Irish Lives Remembered Online Magazine

‘Irish Lives Remembered’, edited by Eileen Munnelly and designed by Michael Munnelly, is a terrific monthly online magazine full of research tips.  I first discovered this treasure and posted about the County Cork resources included in the June issue.


Each issue focuses on a different county in Ireland. January’s issue focuses on County Westmeath and gives many ideas on finding your Westmeath ancestors. There are details on the Dun na Si Heritage Centre for genealogical research. Libraries & archives are discussed.  It suggests a visit to Athlone Castle which has been renovated recently. Kevin McCormack has an article about Valuation Records. John Martin writes about Railways in Local and Family History. This issue also includes:  Book reviews, Tips on Family Artifacts, Identifying Family Photos, the Importance of Flags & Emblems, information on The Gathering & more.

Reading the magazine is free. I like to read it in PDF format.  I even enjoy the advertisements! If you are interested in Irish research and you read this you won’t be disappointed.
