New-Look Web Site
After eleven years the time has come to give my web site a bit of a make-over.
In the coming months, with the help of web designer Gavin Lyons, we will be
gradually updating the pages on the site, brightening it up and improving the
look. I hope you like the new design and your comments are always welcome.
Louth and WWI
1914-1918 - The Returned Army: County Louth Servicemen in the Great War
by Donal Hall. This is an on-going list, now with some 1,600 names, that
complements my brother's book on County Louth war dead (more than 800
recorded). The list has been updated with the names of 60 men from the
Australian Forces, all with County Louth connections. The commitment of men
and women to the war effort was immense.
With so much genealogical information lost in the Public Records Office fire of
1922, census substitutes can be vital in genealogical research. Some of the lists
found on my County Louth web site are quite obscure, but give an indication of
the alternative sources - those all-important census substitutes - often essential
when researching your family history. There are nearly two hundred and fifty
pages of information, containing around 100k County Louth-related names, to
be found here, so you may prefer to use the Site Map when browsing or the new
Google search engine at the top of the page.
