The Shamrock Tombstone Transcription Project, a new special project of the IrelandGenWeb Project, is collecting user submitted data for  tombstones not located in Ireland but which indicate a place of origin in Ireland.  Initially begun as part of the Shamrock Ireland email list, in May of 2001, the project moved off list to a permanent location on a web server.  The IrelandGenWeb Project is proud to be associated with this data collection effort and encourages anyone with tombstone data to donate it so that researchers world-wide will have access.
