New Irish Records 15th October 2021

We have just released nearly 1 million records of baptisms, marriages and burials from Wexford Catholic Parish Records and new Dublin Will and Grant Books to provide a valuable resource for those researching Irish ancestry.

The Wexford Parish records have been newly transcribed and also benefit from our SmartSearch that enables subscribers to look for the parent's potential marriage records from baptism records and also potential siblings. Each result also has a link to view the registers on the National Library of Ireland's website should the researcher wish to see an image of the actual page of the Catholic parish register.

The Dublin wills are from the Deputy Keeper Of Ireland, Index To The Act or Grant Books, and To Original Wills, of The Diocese Of Dublin 1272 -1858 (26th, 30th, and 31st Report) and cover an area that is bigger than the current County of Dublin as the diocese included a sizeable part of County Wicklow, some substantial parts of southern and eastern County Kildare, as well as smaller portions of Counties Carlow, Laois (Queen's County) and Wexford.

You can find out more about these collections and discover George Harrison's Wexford ancestors Irish Parish Records in our latest featured article.
