The Irish Genealogical Research Society (IGRS) has launched another online resource. This time it's a database index to Wilson's Dublin Directory, forming part of the 1775 edition of The Treble Almanac.

Summer makes the job of clambouring around graveyards taking photographs a little more enjoyable, so it's no real surprise that the latest two-week package from the volunteer team at IGP Archives is jam-packed with headstone photos and memorial transcriptions.

Alas, poor CDs and DVDs, we hardly knew ye.

Have you purchased any software lately? How about digital images of an old genealogy book? Did you obtain them on a CD or DVD disk? If so, keep that disk. It is already an antique and probably will be a collector’s item before long.

Twenty years ago, we all purchased software on floppy disks. Perhaps ten years ago, software was usually delivered on CD-ROM disks.
