Wait for it: Ireland's Registry of Deeds going online

Ireland's Registry of Deeds holds over 5 million memorial records in 17,000 bound volumes; a source of property transactions in Ireland from 1708 to present day. It's arguably the biggest substantially untapped resource for genealogists in all of Ireland.
Now The Property Registration Authority has a long term vision to make these historical records of the available and discoverable online for research and the enjoyment of all.
Read about it in this Property Registry Authority news release, and in Claire Santry's Irish Genealogy News blog.

Don't miss the RootsTech London 3-day admission give-away.

John, I linked to Claire Santry’s link from your post. There does not appear to be a way to “subscribe” to her blog, other than “visiting regularly”, which is unlikely with all the other readings to do. Have I missed a “subscribe” to her blog button?

On the other hand are there other Irish or closely related bloggers you would recommend?

Bill: As far as I know there is no subscribe feature on Claire's site. If you use Twitter she often posts there about additions to her blog - @Irish_Genealogy.

The only other Irish blog I follow fairly regularly is John Grenham's at
