Irish Historic Graves Project

If you are researching Irish families, you might be interested in learning about the Historic Graves project. It is a community-based project consisting of volunteers who are currently taking photographs of tombstones in Irish cemeteries and uploading them onto the website http://historicgraves.com. This alone promises to make it valuable to family researchers, but it also contains some even more interesting features.  Volunteers are uploading old and new surveys and recorded audio and video stories of cemeteries.  There is no fee to search or view the contents on the website.  However, don’t be surprised if you don’t yet see an ancestor’s headstone.  This is a fairly new, but on-going project.
