DIGdat – Digital Irish Genealogy Data


DigDat Has a New Home! – This site will remain functional during the transition, but by the end of Feb 2015 (I Hope) everything here will be available on the new site (as well as much new material) … better organized, more accessible and easier to use. VISIT: http://digdat.ajmorris.com/ and try out the new site! If you are a member here you will need to log-in again as it is functionally a completely separate site, but your same username and password should work there, if not use the contact form to let me know.
