Ireland Discovery Maps Index


WELCOME to the Ireland Book Discussion (IRELAND-BOOK-DISCUSSION-L) Mailing List. 

             This is a discussion area for anyone who has an interest in books relating to Ireland Genealogy, Culture, Travel and/or History.  Hopefully, it will be a place to announce new books, review books we have read and used in our research, and to inquire into whether books of our particular interests have been published.
             This site will also be a place to come for help when you want to change your subscription, want to post and forgot how, check on links related to Irish books, check on books discussed on the mailing list.  Books will be organized by county when appropriate, travel, history, general genealogy, etc.  If links are available for the book in question, that will also be provided.  This website should be a resource for those looking for a book to fit your situation.




                Please keep this message. I recommend that you keep a copy on file in your computer as well as a printed paper copy that you can find easily. 

                    Please note:  This list is set up so that all replies automatically go  to the list and not to the poster.  This is done because our list numbers are small, just about 100 at this time,  and  because much of the information posted in replies to queries is also helpful to others on the list. 

         If you wish to reply  privately  to someone, just copy and paste that person's address in the "To:" section of the message composition. 





To post a message to the list, send it to:
(for both L and D subscriptions)

Please remember that it helps to put something in the "subject line".  Many people delete
            messages without any subject.  In additon, a new automated system at RootsWeb will most likely
     reject any posting without a subject line.
