13. If a relative died in one of the wars, there is a very good chance they will be recorded at the Commonwealth Graves Commission website, for example, http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/2755249/MURPHY,%20JOSEPH
14. Further Irish records may be found at the British http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/ but this is a pay site, so try to find other avenues before searching here. There are some free records, so it is worth having a nose around. For example, the Coast Guard service records are freely downloadable from the site. You can also search http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/Coastguards/index.html for Coast Guard records. Or http://policehistory.com/ and http://irishconstabulary.com/
15. If you are based in Dublin, you will before familiar with http://www.nli.ie/en/homepage.aspx and http://www.nli.ie/en/family-history-introduction.aspx. They have a lot of records available on microfiche, including Royal Irish Constabulary records & Wills, and access is free. They also have resident genealogists who can give you pointers, on a first come, first served basis http://www.nli.ie/en/genealogy-advisory-service.aspx
16. Forums. Don’t be afraid to google for forums covering your subject or area. There are lots of useful forums such as http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=1288 and http://boards.ancestry.co.uk/ where people are more than happy to help you.
