This summer Irish Ancestors Direct are involved with Kilcummin Historical Group in a local voluntary community project. Funding was received from the Heritage Council to record the gravestones in Old Kilcummin Graveyard. John Tierney of Historic Graves has photographed all the gravestones and next week we hope to have access to all the photos online ( www.historicgraves.ie ). We will be one of the first graveyards in Kerry to have an online presence and hope to expand into inputting genealogical and local historical information over time.
The volunteers are currently busy recording gravestone inscriptions which will be linked to the photos that will shortly appear online. Much work needs to be done so if you have free time on your hands your assistance would be appreciated.
