Jonesborough (County Armagh)

Welcome to Jonesborough

Our aim is to connect all people with a link to Jonesborough. You may live here, have visited here or maybe are tracing ancestors who left long ago. In any case, we’re sure to have lots to share and are delighted to welcome you.
Feel free to post your message and we will respond as soon as possible. Remember to post as much information as you can with regard to the people you are researching. The more information you post, the more likely it is that one of our volunteers will be able to advise or assist you. Also include information concerning which sources you may have already used so others may further your search.

Please be patient - as our program has only begun to roll out across the island of Ireland and volunteers in some areas may not yet be organised.

Thank you
