Written by John Dorney, historian and editor of The Irish Story website, the book reveals the complete, shocking story of Ireland's capital during and after the shelling of the Four Courts, the latter an event that will forever be lamented by Irish genealogists as it destroyed centuries of records about our ancestors.
This paper was first published in 1772 as the London Derry Journal and Donegal & Tyrone Advertiser, and is second only to the Belfast NewsLetter as the oldest Irish newspaper still in existence.
This paper, which is now owned by Johnston Press, was first published in Cookstown, Co Tyrone, in 1891 and the BNA's new holding starts from that date. The planned archive will run to 1962. Available so far are editions published in 1891-1892, 1894-1898, and 1900-1909.
Here is still another example why we cannot depend upon paper documents alone to be accessible in the future. Homes, streets, businesses, parks and city buildings in Midland, Michigan got soaked in a flood several weeks ago. In the city alone, more than 1,000 homes had some type of damage. Of interest to genealogists, the hardest hit city building was the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library.
