Irish Family History Society adds a further 10 years (1995 - 2004) online access to their historic journals for members.
The Irish Family History Society Journal has been published annually since 1985, shortly after the Society was established. Many are now out print, particularly those from the early years. The back issues of the Journal have been digitised by Eneclann in memory of the late John Heueston, past Chairman and Treasurer. The first tranche of 10 issues from 1985 to 1994 was made available in late 2014. A further 10 years from 1995 to 2004 are now available in the Members’ area on www.ifhs.ie. A further five years, along with a searchable Index, will be added in April.
Mary Beglan, Irish Family History Society’s Chairman said “I am delighted that these additional journals in digitised form are now available for the benefit of our members. The first tranche of digitised journals was well received, and I thank Fiona Fitzsimons of Eneclann for her kind gift of digitising the Journals in memory of the late John Heueston. The journals cover a broad range of articles and will be of great interest to our members”
Based in Ireland, the Irish Family History Society was established in 1984 and has a worldwide membership. The Society holds regular meetings and outings, and publishes an annual Journal as well as News Sheets for its members. Please visit the Society’s website www.ifhs.ie for more information.
