Searching for ancestors in N Ireland?

I have just visited the www(.)historyfromheadstones(.)com site where I have been completely absorbed for about 3 hours. See next...Many, many names, dates of birth and death, reasons for death, family connections, wills etc, to be found in the Themes section of the site. If you've got some time to spare it's worth a look. You can also pay to search for specific names of course which I also found worthwhile as more than one ancestor is buried in the same grave. Also memorial headstones are erected to honour the memory of many members of the same family.
