This was great news to read from RootsIreland. In the past, the shortest option was a 1-month subscription at $28 which for many was just enough to discourage researchers from giving it a try. Well, the website now offers a 1 day (24 hours) option. You can look at MUCH material in 1 day!
And, if you find the website just chock full of information and want to extend your subscription, the amount paid for the 1 day option will be deducted from the purchase of a 1, 6 or 12-month subscription as long as you upgrade your subscription within 30 days of the original purchase.
That is quite nice also. Basically, you can’t lose!
If you don’t know about RootsIreland …
RootsIreland offers a unique database of more than 20 million Irish records
It contains data from 34 county genealogy centres on the island of Ireland. The main sources on the site are Irish Catholic and other church records of baptisms, marriages and deaths which are the most important source for tracing Irish ancestry.
The Irish Family History Foundation has been the coordinating body for a network of county genealogy centres and family history societies for over thirty years. The sources available vary for each county so please check our Irish Online Sources for details of what is available on the website.
If you took advantage of this new 1 day option, let us know if you made any finds.
