This is a huge site that contains around 60 searchable databases aimed at providing Irish ancestry researchers with a valuable online resource. The key to this site is that many of the databases are exclusive as they contain information transcribed from original sources obtained by the sites' developers. These include many 19th century residential and trade directories, school registers, teachers' lists, newspaper transcriptions and many other unusual sources. The databases are divided by region too making it easy for visitors to hone their research to relevant areas.
The site also contains a number of old photos and postcards, research books and details of libraries and
research organisations. Some of the databases are free to use - but most require membership. There are three levels of membership: Full costs £10.50 per year, giving you access to most of the databases. You can then upgrade for an additional £10.50 to become a Premium member that gives you full access or, if you are a business and a heavy user, the corporate membership costs £110.
