The current issue of Irish Roots magazine (2010 number 4) contains an excellent article by Henry Cruise describing the genealogical resources he used to research the history of his Cruise family in Ireland. The article is the first in a three-part series and is an edited version of a project he submitted for a Diploma in Genealogy awarded by Independent Colleges in conjunction with the Association of Professional Genealogists in Ireland. The first part of the article focuses on Henry's grandparents, William Alexander Raleigh Cruise and Tempy Adye-Curran, who lived at a variety of addresses in Dublin and had thirteen children. William was born in 1878 in Drumhirk, County Monaghan, and was the son of Richard Joseph Cruise and Elizabeth Francesca Raleigh. The article can be seen online on the Irish Roots website by clicking on "Inside" on the cover of the magazine and scrolling through the pages. Irish Roots is only available in digital format and a subscription is required to receive the full journal. I shall look forward to reading the second article in the series in due course.
