Ireland's new online archive collection

This guest post is written by a relative who researches genealogy.

The website www.iar.ie, launched March 3, allows the public to search a wide range of Irish archives online. The IAR website is a portal bringing together a large number of collections from around Ireland, preserved by a range of organizations. Some of the collections include the Irish Film Archive, the Guinness family archives, archives from UCC’s Boole Library and a large number of city and county council archives.

Long-term, the site hopes that all Irish archives will be digitized and fully accessible online. For more information about the IAR site, click here.
