Consultancy Service

I am available to research Irish records, some of which are listed below

Civil Records

Civil Registration of births, deaths and Roman Catholic marriages that commenced in 1864 and other denominations that commenced in 1845.

Church Records

Irish Roman Catholic Parish registers are available in some cases from the late 17th century until the 1880’s.

Census Records

At present 1901 and 1911 census are the only returns available with only a limited amount of 19th century fragments for certain counties.

Land/Property Records

The absence of complete census returns results in Land/Property Records such as Griffith’s Valuation (1847-1864) being very important.
