When discussing libraries, I failed to emphasize the resources that have been, and continue to be, put online by Ireland's libraries and museums in the "Ask About Ireland" web site. Not only does the site contain the best Griffith's Valuation database (see my January post regarding Griffith's Valuation), the libraries involved have been placing local histories and other books online in the "Reading Room." I will write more about this site and about researching local histories in a future column, but I thought a "shout out" now could help many researchers. I would love to hear of any treasures fellow researchers find at this site.
