Irish Genealogy

Irish Genealogy: "The Central Signposting index (C.S.I) contains over 3 million genealogical records which may help you trace that elusive Irish ancestor. If you are not certain of the county of origin of your ancestor this could help you make a start.

There are currently 3,198,125 records in the database from Armagh, Cavan, Derry, Donegal, Fermanagh, Leitrim, Limerick, Mayo, Sligo, Tyrone & Wexford. Types of record include Birth, Baptism, Marriage, Griffith's Valuation, Tithe Applotments' and 1901 Census returns. Click here for a breakdown of the records.

The C.S.I (Central Signposting Index) will point you to the local county based IFHF genealogy centre that may hold the records you seek. To use the C.S.I please enter your search criteria into the form below and click on 'Search'."

The Kingdom: Bishop hands over records on diocese: "THE Bishop of Kerry, Bill Murphy, will this week oversee the formal handover of Church records to the Department of Arts, Sports and Tourism.

The bishop will officiate as Bertie Kelliher, chairman of the Kerry Genealogical Research Centre, will hand over of the diocesan records of baptism, marriages and deaths to department secretary, Con Haugh, this Tuesday.

The presentation of the digitised records marks the culmination of years of painstaking work by the Kerry Genealogical Research Centre which oversaw the computerisation of around 500,000 Church documents dating from the 1750s.

Kerry County Council, the Trustees of Muckross House, FÁS, the Catholic Church and Church of Ireland backed the project, while the Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism directly supported the computerisation of an additional 100,000 Kerry records."
