New landing pages for Dublin cemeteries photos

A few months ago Glasnevin Cemetery Trust uploaded a new searchable pay-per-view burial records database at www.glasnevintrust.ie/genealogy/. The service is excellent, if not a little expensive, but using it I was able to find the burial of my three times great grandmother Teresa Mooney in 1919.

Now the Irish Genealogy Project Archives have added photographs of headstones from the cemetery at a new landing page at www.igp-web.com/IGPArchives/ire/dublin/photos/tombstones/glasnevin-ndx.htm. At present some 300 images are available, although I suspect more will appear in due course, if the site's coverage of Mount Jerome Cemetery is anything to go by! The images have been contributed by Joyce Tunstead and Yvonne Russell.

New landing pages for Mount Jerome and Deansgrange Cemeteries have also been created, with the former at www.igp-web.com/IGPArchives/ire/dublin/photos/tombstones/mt-jerome-ndx.htm and the latter at www.igp-web.com/IGPArchives/ire/dublin/photos/tombstones/deansgrange-ndx.htm. All three pages host transcriptions of the cemeteries's stones also. And free of charge!
