Ireland XO: Reaching Out

The Irish Government has created a reverse genealogy program to reconnect people of Irish Ancestry with family and local history. It hopes to bring 70 million Irish Diaspora back to their place of origin in Ireland. Working with volunteers at town, village and parish level in Ireland, they identify who left those areas, and trace them and their descendants worldwide. This reverse genealogy entails tracing and recording all the people who left Ireland and seeking out their living descendants worldwide. Those identified or recognised as persons of Irish heritage or affiliation are invited to become part of a new extended Irish society. Ireland XO is a not for profit organisation and offers this service free of charge. If you know you are of Irish descent, then this may be a website for you. http://www.irelandxo.com/
