NOT FORGOTTEN

The large number of 1921 additions yesterday and today are men who died in Ireland due to rebel activity or illness/accident. Well done to the researchers who made this happen.

I use any approach I can; though I have not yet had to resort to bribery or demanding with menaces

I use council databases, direct approaches to local authorities & of course there is growing band of volunteers who will search for me.

Wish I could offer to help but I don't think any would have made it to this neck of the woods. Keep up the superb work - I for one certainly appreciate what it means, even if there are no relatives to see the results and I am sure there are others here who share my view.
