Eyewitnesses Come To Life In 1641 Irish Rebellion

leave a comment »

Searchable archives of Protestant eyewitness accounts of the bloody 17th century Irish Rebellion will be open to the public on October 22nd, 2010. Starting in Dublin, the ten year Catholic revolt, eventually spread through all of Ireland and resulted in the deaths of 12,000 Irish Protestants.

A treasure trove for genealogists and linguists, Internet users will find over 90,000 people named in the transcribed, one-of-a-kind historic digitalized records at Trinity College, Dublin. The archives could prove healing to Irish families, both Protestant and Catholic in understanding what led up to the rebellion which eventually led to the wrathful massacre.
