That's fun - I love meeting the distant cousins. Pro-tip - meeting for lunch, not dinner, then you have an excuse to leave if necessary!

Afternoon all!

My sub to find my past and roots Ireland are up and was thinking of subscribing for the year, does anyone think there will be special offers nearer St Patrick's day?

Definitely wait! I'd say they'll release some nice deals in the next few days. Keep an eye on Claire Santry's blog too.

I've decided to post in the off topic chat instead of the Irish Genealogy Records thread to avoid multiple heartattacks and unnecessary hope!!!

But, its coming to the end of March soon, which is what I, personally would consider "early" in the year !! 😅 I just hope the people in charge of posting the records think like me 😬 I'm hoping for an upload hopefully during the Easter weekend !

Good call posting here.
I agree the end of March is the end of "early" and I was today just cursing not being able to view a 1918 birth for free yet.

While I would heartily concur that the end of March is the end of what reasonably might be considered early in the new year, I fear that those responsible for the Irish Genealogy website may have a much more fluid view of the matter.

I got 100% Ireland and Scotland In my test, I take that with a pinch of salt as there is obviously Scandinavian ancestry too via the Gallowglass settlers in Ulster. I'm not having much luck with the cousin matches though, I can only see a few who seem legit then you can't even message them anyway as they don't have memberships. Here in the lough Neagh shore Philadelphia was a common place to go to, I bet 1 in 3 Irish-Americans in Philadelphia have some Derry, Tyrone or Donegal ancestry.

You can message matches who don't have a subscription. It's just that if you don't have a subscription, you can't initiate the contact but you can reply if someone else has reached out to you.

Srmf5 is right, but I also think Ancestry doesn't email you if you're off-sub and get messages, so you have to log in to see them.

I always did get emails about new messages when I didn't have a subscription. Actually I don't think you need a subscription to contact DNA matches. It's only if you were to contact someone who you found after searching for family trees in the database.

Hmm, it's a long time since I didn't have an Ancestry sub but it could have changed. DNA matches can contact each other definitely.

Could be anywhere. CoI church yards. Some Dublin records online at irishgenealogy.ie - south and north county on Rootsireland.

No complete coverage - just check the usual grave websites.
