Your Past Letters on Line

Do you have old letters relating to Ireland and  consider them of interest?

I will publish any transcribed letter here to show to the Irish around the world. An image of the letter (full or part) would add interest too.

I'd be particularly interested in letters from  1914-1922 (WWI, The Rising, War of Independence & Civil War). 

 Any interesting letter will be published. Covering any topic. Letters from abroad to Ireland and vice versa would be most welcome.

Ancestry Gifts - Embroidered Family Trees

Here is an embroidered tree (maternal line) that I recently had done for myself.

There is a lot of work that goes into it. I think it makes the ideal gift....... a family heirloom.

The cost of this is around £58 sterling. P&P might be more depending on where it is being sent to. I recommend registered post. (£8) £67.

My tree has a flower and birds which is significant to my Welsh side of the family. The lady who does the trees would advise you on what you could have.

The size of the tree is 16" x 12" and it is on linen. The frame is not included.

Feel free to email me if you would be interested in this for yourself or as a gift.
