- Irish History - Irish History on the Web was created on 21 November 1995.
It was originally housed at http://wwwvms.cc.utexas.edu/~jdana/irehist.html. The process of relocating the website to Larkspirit.com began on 9 July 2003. While some links may function, many internal links in documents will not. In other words, the transfer to the new server will take some time to complete, so please bear with me.
Irish History on the Web is NOT another "links"
page, but instead provides a unique
resource for anyone interested in learning about or researching a wide variety of Irish
history topics. Like a sourcebook, most of the links found here will lead to primary
documents, original essays, bibliographies or specific informational sites, all of which
are visited prior to inclusion on this site. This web site was designed by Jacqueline Dana
as a public service to provide information about Irish history.

- The Norwegian
Emigrant Museum - the Norwegian Emigrant Museum is not designed solely to show

the museum's purpose is to reveal the workings of a process - emigration, immigration and
return migration - a process with historical depth and space, yet with personal impact
upon many individual human beings. To fulfill this purpose, the museum intends to be a
meeting place between the past and the present, between the "family at home" and
the "family out there", to be a symbol for all Norwegians and their descendants
at home and abroad, and a place where they can confirm their identity and their
connections to Norway.
