Factual Genealogy is required

I have copied 17 Church Records of North Monaghan Churches and I feel this is a good base to assist Researchers. Also essential are the Townland Maps, found in the now "out of print" Landscapes of South Ulster which clearly show the locations of the various townlands. Old equivalent names, mostly the English versions of the Irish language townlands are also shown clearly. The postings of descendants of Monaghan emigrants are very helpful too. I have more than 3,000 e-mail addresses of these descendants which illustrates the interest in Monaghan County. Serious researchers are invited to ask for the Parish maps of their Ancestors. I will send them without any charge. Also I have taken photograps of more than 600 gravestones so if you need this reference I will assist you without any charge. Other Genealogy essentials are the Shirley Book - History of the County of Monaghan which is quite costly but I will gladly extract passages which refer to certain townlands, coats of arms, deeds of famous Monaghan people etc, again without any charge.
