FindmyPast Ireland podcast
American blogger Dick Eastman has recorded a podcast with Brian Donovan and Cliona Weldon of FindmyPast Ireland (www.findmypast.ie), at a conference in South Carolina.
In the interview Brian discusses forthcoming plans for the site, including 4 million prison register records which will be fully indexed to name both the guilty and those who were victims of crime, and sometimes naming next of kin. The site will also be releasing records concerning the Easter Rising of 1916, for those who fought both for and against the rebellion, and further court records.
