Irish Memorial Inscriptions Vol. 2

What is inside?

For the first time, the works of one of Ireland’s most eminent researchers of gravestone inscriptions have been collected into one publication. Over a twenty-five year period, 1966-1990, Brian J. Cantwell visited over 500 sites and recorded many thousands of memorials (with dates up to 1900). His work includes all of Wexford and Wicklow, large parts of South County Dublin, much of West Clare, as well as parts of Cork, Kildare, Galway and Sligo. This work has now been compiled and edited by his son, Ian Cantwell. This CD-ROM includes: · Memorials from 546 sites · Over 4,000 pages of transcripts · 24,392 memorials · The names of 67,297 people · Extensive original indexes · Introductory Biography, indexes and statistical analysis by Ian Cantwell This CD-ROM features copies of the original typescript pages of Brian’s work as well as some of his other published works in an easily searchable format. Also included are original photographs taken by Brian, as well as some of his private correspondences and an excellent guide he wrote for the R.S.A.I. on transcribing gravestone inscriptions.
