Pioneers in Irish Graveyard Recording - Dr. Jane Lyons

Earlier this year we met Dr. Jane Lyons of www.from-ireland.net one of the most valuable sources of Irish genealogical data on the internet. Dr. Lyons has shared some of her memorial transcriptions from Aghaboe in Laois (http://historicgraves.ie/sites/default/files/pdf-uploads/surveys/1693/aghaboejanelyonstranscriptions.pdf) with us and the record augments that made by the local community group in the course of a workshop in 2011.

Dr. Lyons pioneered the publication of Irish grave memorial photographs on the internet and finding her photographs (http://www.flickr.com/photos/59366723@N07/tags/gravestone/) on flickr was very encouraging in 2009. Besides publishing so many rare datasets Dr. Lyons also offers a genealogical research service at http://www.from-ireland.net/genealogy-research-service/#display.
