YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE

Many a family have farewelled their loved ones never knowing whether they would ever see them again. It must have been so hard to not only have little or no communication over their lifetime, nevertheless not knowing where they would be finally laid to rest.

The aim of this site is to help those looking for their ancestors and ancestral graves
wherever they rest in foreign lands.



If you have photos of Irish related graves, you are welcome to send them to me for inclusion. This site is for those graves outside of Ireland, particularly isolated graves, in the hope that those researching may be able to 'find' their ancestors.



If you know of great websites that include such graves, I would be happy to link to them. My intention is not to reproduce the work of others, rather to add to it. You will see certain attributes to particular sites and photos from those sites. These are posted with permission and are those I have searched for from much larger general gravestones sites, selecting the 'Irish' graves in order to make your search easier.


There have been a number of private contributions. These all have copyright attributed. If you wish to know more about these names listed, please let me know and I will connect you with the person who contributed them where possible.

You will sometimes find more information on the Biographies Page.

I hope you enjoy the search. If you wish to contact me, you can do so via crissouli at gmail dot com or simply via the comments box.

Thank you for visiting,
Crissouli
