Following the success of the online publication of the 1901 Census the need to improve access to Irish Genealogy has never been more apparent.
The Friends of Ireland Campaign is reaching out to all of Ireland's friends across the globe. The campaign is petitioning the Irish Government to improve online access to Irish Genealogy.
The campaign calls upon the Irish Government and Irish National Institutions to provide a single web portal capable of delivering not only details of Births, Deaths & Marriages but also digitised copies of photographs, maps, letters, newspapers, pamphlets, prints, music & voice recordings, video recordings, content on people / places / events / organisations, along with associated notes & full source information. The campaign further calls upon the Irish Government to provide the means by which the Friends of Ireland & the People of Ireland can share their Story of Ireland.
To express your support for this campaign please sign the petition at Friends of Ireland Campaign. Further information is available from the campaign website at Home page - Friends of Ireland Campaign - Welcome!.
Please consider forwarding this information to friends, family and colleagues who may have an interest in supporting this cause.
