Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with World Vital Records

I don't have Irish roots, but if I did I would take advantage of searching some free Irish databases being offered through World Vital Records. This week World Vital Records is celebrating St. Patrick's Day with several new Irish databases from the National Archives Records Administration (NARA). The following Irish databases from NARA, will be available FREE to access until March 25th.

Passengers Who Arrived at the Port of New York During the Irish Famine, created, 1977 - 1989, documenting the period 1/12/1846 - 12/31/1851

List of Ships that Arrived at the Port of New York During the Irish Famine, 1/12/1846 - 12/31/1851

WVR is a new subscription-based site. Click here to find out more about special sign-up offers.

If you've got some elusive Irish ancestors in your family tree, give these databases a try--perhaps you'll experience some "luck" and find them!
