FAQs

This is Irish Ancestors at johngrenham.com.
It aims to provide a single reference source for any records needed to research Irish Ancestors, as well as a starting-point for anyone with a surname historically found in Ireland.
This site is the lineal descendant of the old site. The differences are:
  • The content is fuller and better-organised.
  • The Irish Times owned 50% of the online rights to the software running the old site. I own 100% of this site.
  • The Irish Times had legacy responsibilities to customers of the old site. I have assumed those responsibilities.
  • The old site provided paid once-off reports and a non-time-limited, unit-based subscription service. This site operates a soft pay-wall based on a purely time-limited subscription.
Because I need to pay a mortgage and support my family. If I don't have an income, the site can't continue.

And anyway, the "soft pay-wall" model means that subscription is more polite request than obligation. Enough said.

Much of the site, in particular the Browse section, doesn't count towards the free five views. In general, only pages that return specific information about records, places or surnames are counted.
Please let me know as soon as possible and I'll rectify it.
That's a good question and I'm glad you asked it. Pretty much whenever I come across something new - some weeks every day, some weeks one day only. I post to the blog weekly (at least). The "What's new?" page will tell you. You can also sign up there to be notified directly.
Another good question. It's as up-to-date and accurate as I can make it. But everything human has flaws (at least that's my excuse) and there are undoubtedly mistakes on the site. Let me know of any you come across and I'll correct them immediately.
How many times do I have to tell you? No, no, no!
