President Clinton is set to be the first in the queue to register on an Irish geneaology site launching today - St Patrick?s day.
Irish prime minister Bertie Ahern is launching the site, dubbed the Millenium Irish Register, today in Washington. The site will be part of the Local Ireland portal which is a joint venture between Ireland?s national telecom company Eireann and web developer Nua.
The aim of the site is to set up a global register of Irish names which will enable the estimated 70 million people of Irish descent around the globe to search their family trees.
Anyone of Irish descent is free to enter details on the site, for which access is free.
Clinton has been given the honour of registering first as a thank you for his part in the Northern Ireland peace process.
