Over the last couple of hours, IrishGenealogy.ie has been uploading another instalment of civil registration records, complete with images of birth, marriage and (possibly) death registers.

The upload is taking its time, and I can't say exactly what will be the final call, but so far I can confirm that the 1916 births (the rolling year from 100 years ago) are available, and the index + register image of marriage from 1869/1870 to 1881 seem to be going live in steady fashion (the 1882-1940 records were already fully online).

We’re delighted to introduce our new TV commercial for the holidays. As a family history and DNA company, we know what a tremendous gift it can be to discover your ethnic roots and find new relatives. This is why, this holiday season, we invite you to give your loved ones the ultimate gift: a MyHeritage DNA test. Our inspiration for this year’s commercial was the fact that within each of us are the many layers of our family’s history and ethnic background.

We often think of speculation in stock market, real estate, oil futures, or dot-com companies to be modern ventures for risk-taking entrepreneurs. Not so. Our ancestors were known to take perhaps even greater risks in a largely unregulated business atmosphere. Perhaps the most famous was the Dutch Tulip Mania of 1636-1637. However, it was not confined to the Dutch; many of our ancestors in other countries also joined in the frenzy.
