Over 20 Million Irish records


This website contains an index and transcriptions of many Irish records, including the majority of the Irish Catholic parish registers. It was compiled in most cases from the parish registers held in the local parishes. There are records on this site that are not on the National Library's Parish Registers site. The NLI may also have some parish registers that are not on this site.

The Irish Family History Foundation has been the coordinating body for a network of county genealogy centres on the island of Ireland for over thirty years. The genealogy centres’ databases include various denominations of church records of baptisms, marriages and deaths/burials, census returns/substitutes, and gravestone inscriptions.

New records will be added as the computerisation of sources continues in the local genealogy centres.
