My name is Jane Lyons, Ph.D., and I post on this page. I set this page up as an attachment to my Jane Lyons Genealogy page. This page is called Irish Genealogy, it has NOTHING to do with any professional site of the same name
I do not have and this page has nothing to do with a website which carries the name irishgenealogy
This page has been set up by a woman, an individual working on her own who is interested in history and gravestones.
I am by training a Scientist, a Marine Biologist. I was awarded my PhD from the National University of Ireland through University College Cork in 1991.
All my photographs are freely available on the net nad yes, some of them can't be read, but we have an index
and yes, on my website www.from-ireland.net I do have a section a bit, with every gravestone page saying that if someone wants a copy of an original photo then I will charge them 5 Euro
In truth, that's nothing really. If you stop and think about the amount of money I have spent travelling to places, if you stop and think about the time that has gone in to working with photographs - then 5 euro for one shot or a group of shots is not much - and..........it doesn't even begin to pay for money I've spent.
The people who every so often tell me they found their ancestors on my pages - does it ever dawn on them how incredile that its to me
I doubt it.
