Fantastic Find: John Grenham - Irish Roots

Mr. Grenham's website is a great resource for those of you researching your Irish ancestors. Check out his blog Irish Roots. For instance, his most recent post (dated 24 April 2017) is titled "We have grave concerns..." and it's chock full of links to an impressive number of sources for Irish cemetery records.

The post begins:
I was once told by an American psychotherapist that the Irish have serious problems with bereavement. Apparently we find it very hard to let go. Maybe that’s the reason we have such a thing about graveyards. Because we certainly do have a thing about graveyards.

You can read a short biography of John Grenham at Legacy Family Tree's website but, sadly, you've a month late to hear his webinar "Why are Irish records so weird?" for free.
