Overview

The best source for tracking down records in Ireland.

Irish Records is your guide to locating Irish genealogical sources in Ireland.

For the period of greatest interest to family history researchers -- the late eighteenth and early to middle nineteenth centuries -- Irish family records are sparse. However, sources are available -- civil registers, censuses, land records, church records -- and Irish Records tells you where to find them.

Irish Records is arranged by Irish count and describes civil, ecclesiastical, and printed primary and secondary sources for each county. It also provides important details about the heritage and genealogy centers which now exist in most Irish counties. These centers have indexed many important sources and provide valuable research services that can help you discover your Irish ancestry.

Includes details on Presbyterian, Church of Ireland, and Catholic records.

Provides a list of Irish heritage centers and indicates sources indexed by each.
