Do you have personal stories, family research, or neighborhood memories to share about the links between Wexford and Savannah? This is a community project, so we encourage you to participate in an oral-history interview. We seek to record for posterity the unique, powerful Wexford-Savannah story.
We’re working to catalogue and preserve—and to properly document and accessibly display—this heritage. The project welcomes donations of documents, photographs, and other memorabilia concerning ties between Wexford and Savannah—and, indeed, southeastern Ireland and the American South. All items are valued: for example, a Repeal Association Membership Certificate would make real the politics that informed pre-Famine Wexford, while a sugar pan manufactured by Kehoe’s Iron Works would testify to the entrepreneurship and work ethic that the Wexford newcomers brought to Savannah.
Your financial support of the Wexford-Savannah Axis research project will ensure that this important work progresses, inspiring young people to create the future in ways that honor the past. The Irish-language word comhar means “the power of working together,” and that’s the ethos behind this world-class heritage project. A wide variety of tax-deductible support opportunities are available, from sponsoring research scholarships for students to funding the digitization of historic documents. No amount of assistance is too small, but we also offer major naming opportunities for families and corporations.
