A new facebook gateway for those with Dalton family roots
The Dalton Genealogical Society is celebrating the launch of its new Irish facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DaltonsofIreland, with a month-long project featuring a fresh Dalton family history item every day during the month of May to publicise the resources and data available and to make contact with Irish Daltons who are keen to know more about their ancestors.
300,000 plus entries
Whether related to American outlaws, medieval knights, businessmen, farmers or Counts of the Holy Roman Empire, Daltons who visit to the facebook page gain access to the 300,000 plus entries in the Dalton Data Bank and associated information, the opportunity to interact with Daltons in Ireland and worldwide who are actively researching their ancestors and to join the Dalton DNA Project which has enabled many around the world to find long lost members of their family tree.
The Gathering 2013
Once the preserve of dedicated researchers the awakening of interest in family research in Ireland since The Gathering 2013 has created a movement where more and more previously hidden information and public records are being made available.
The Irish Dalton history is a fascinating one and we hope to find more family members to join us in a journey of discovery whether their surname is Dalton, D’Alton or Daltoun.
Any help you can give us would be greatly appreciated.
