HOME - YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE

Many a family have farewelled their loved ones never knowing whether they would ever see them again. It must have been so hard to not only have little or no communication over their lifetime, nevertheless not knowing where they would be finally laid to rest.

The aim of this site is to help those looking for their ancestors and ancestral graves wherever they rest in foreign lands.


If you have photos of Irish related graves, you are welcome to send them to me for inclusion. This site is for those graves outside of Ireland, particularly isolated graves, in the hope that those researching may be able to 'find' their ancestors.


If you know of great websites that include such graves, I would be happy to link to them. My intention is not to reproduce the work of others, rather to add to it. You will see certain attributes to particular sites and photos from those sites. These are posted with permission and are those I have searched for from much larger general gravestones sites, selecting the 'Irish' graves in order to make your search easier.

There have been a number of private contributions. These all have copyright attributed. The aim of this site is to preserve as many photos and details as possible of graves that are of Irish born who now rest in foreign lands. 

 I would especially like to acknowledge the many contributions by John Mayer who has helped enormously by photographing and transcribing many of the gravestones in the USA section.

Thank you doesn't seem enough, but I do Thank him and all others who have contributed.


If you wish to know more about these names listed alongside the photos, please let me know and I will connect you with the person who contributed them where possible, if they are private contributions of family members.

You will sometimes find more information on the Biographies Page.


I hope you enjoy the search. If you wish to contact me, you can do so via crissouli at gmail dot com or simply via the comments box.

Thank you for visiting,
Crissouli

    Hi Crissouli,. Nudgee Catholic Cemetery in Brisbane, Australia has a lot of Irish born people. Not sure what percentage identify as Irish born though. I have some photos of my family which I hope to post if I can find this again when I get home to decent internet.

  3. Hi Susan, I would be happy to have you share your photos... you can email me at the address in the post above, see crissouli at gmail dot com.. Please include Names with each photo, so they don't get confused with others. It would be very helpful if you are able to transcribe what is on the gravestones, as that would save me a lot of time. I'm happy to say that I am sent batches of photos daily, so anything that saves me a little time is very much appreciated.
    Please be sure to separate each lot by cemeteries, then set out as follows..
    Surname, Name
    Born.....
    From...
    Died...
    Aged...
    If you have any other information on your families, I am happy to include short pieces in Biographies and cross link.
    Thank you so much for your kind offer. I look forward to hearing from you.
