Dear Eneclann customer,

Sale Update!

The St. Patrick’s day sale was a great success!  There has been a slight delay in dispatching ordered items, due to the volume of sales.  We are currently processing orders and all orders will be dispatched by the middle of next week.  Thank you for your patience and support.

 


Australian Who Do You Think You Are?

In case you missed it, series 4 of the Australian version of ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ began on Tuesday on SBS.  Eneclann researched the Irish family history for the show.

Project Focus: Deaf Heritage Centre

St. Joseph’s School for Deaf Boys, Cabra, Dublin was established in 1857.  The school still functions today as a fully operational school for the deaf and is regarded as a flagship and model for the education of the deaf throughout the world.  Eneclann archivists carried out an archive project on behalf of the Deaf Heritage Centre in June 2011.  This project involved the digital imaging of a collection of photographic material.

Research Q&A

County Focus: Derry/Londonderry

The Annals of Derry is a must-have for anyone interested in the history of Derry, it is a chronological account from the earliest times. The Register of Derry Cathedral 1642-1703 might help break down a few brick walls if you’re looking for ancestors in the second half of the 17th Century. Our range of Ulster directories that encompass Derry/Londonderry include Pigot’s and Slater’s and could assist in finding your family at a later date.  If you’re looking for information about where your ancestors came from to provide excellent context to your research you can try the census reports.  These contain detailed statistical information right down to townland level (they are not census returns that contain family details) and you can buy each census report individually as a download or on a CD as a whole.
