Our Weekly Chronicles Challenge is an open invitation to any of our members to create Chronicles around their family history and local connection to a particular parish.  We invite anyone to add an XO Chronicle using the weekly prompts for guidance and assistance with creating XO Chronicles.  We will share these Chronicles on our website for all to enjoy.  Often, there are other members who are also researching the same family or local area and this can lead to sharing and collaboration.  Enjoy!

Chronicles Challenge Week 7

This week's prompt is:  Military.  This prompt can be used to create an Ancestor profile about a person who served in any military conflict or capacity and who was a native of or  connected to a  parish.   It can also be used to create a Building profile about a building or monument or a headstone associated with a military veteran that is located within Ireland.  With the celebration of VE Day this week, many of our local communities have monuments dedicated to the local men and women who served in various military conflicts. These monuments can be a great source for a Building Chronicle.   In addition, a Timeline event can be created about  the monument dedication, a military  commemoration or another military event.  Please feel free to be creative around this prompt. These Military Chronicles will be shared with all our members who will be able to add their own military Ancestor profiles. Please use the hashtag  #ChroniclesChallenge with submission of your Chronicle.
