26 August 2022
Explore three decades of local history journals for Ireland in the latest release from FindMyPast.

The Genealogical Society of Ireland, originally named the Dun Laoghaire Genealogical Society, was founded in 1990 and has been publishing its journals regularly since 1992.

Though these journals were published throughout the 1990s onwards, the stories within them document events that occurred all the way through the 1800s to the mid 1900s, giving you a broad and bold scope of life in Ireland throughout multiple generations.

Within the journal pages, you can find articles covering a huge range of social history topics, including:

  • school lists
  • shipwrecks
  • military movements
  • murder cases
  • the genealogies of selected families 

If you're searching for a particular ancestor, you'll be able to search by their full name, and you may just find a richly-detailed story about their life. You can also search by free text - for example, if you're looking for information regarding the Great Irish Famine, you can search 'Ireland famine' and find an array of relevant articles.
