"Often, we are too slow to recognize how much and in what ways we can assist each other through sharing expertise and knowledge." (Owen Arthur)

Stanley R. Megraw & Lynette Nunn (County Coordinators)

Stan and Lyn have been coordinators of the IGP County Down website since 2014 and are the editors (with Brenda Anderson) of the book "Irish Roots in County Down: Stories of Family & Place" (Ainsley Publishing, 2014).This publication is a diverse collection of twenty-two narratives written by family historians from Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, and was published in memory of Fiona Doyle Jones (1964-2012) and Sheila Phillips (1951-2012). Fiona and Sheila were two very special individuals who provided exceptional support and encouragement to so many others investigating their Irish heritage in County Down.
