Tipperary Studies is delighted to launch the next phase of its Digitisation Project next Tuesday night, 20 December, in The Source Library, Thurles. Over the last number of months work has been ongoing in preparing a number of gravestone inscription lists for online publication and we are proud and delighted to be able to unveil these at www.tipperarystudies.ie.

Gravestone inscriptions are very valuable genealogical tools and we expect that they will be of great benefit to anyone with links to the parishes of North Tipperary, the parish of Killenaule and Moyglass and those researching the families of Irish soldiers in the British Army. We are most grateful for the generosity and assistance of Tom Burnell, Ormond Historical Society and Killenaule Moyglass Development Association in the digitisation of these resources.

The collections will be launched prior to our December lecture at 7.15pm, and everyone is welcome to join us for seasonal refreshments beforehand in the library. For more information contact Mary/John at 0504 29278.
