Lost Irish Records on the Internet

If you find that you’re completely stuck researching some of your Irish ancestry, The National Archives of Ireland, Find My Past and FamilySearch.org have recently announced the release of pre-1901 records that might be of great help to you.  

During the Irish Civil War the majority of pre-1922 records were destroyed in a fire at the Public Records Office.  However, some documents did survive, and those, along with records held elsewhere are now available online.

You can find out more on the FamilySearch Blog.  Click on the “Full Press Release” link to get more information at Find My Past, who are offering 14 days free searches of the full site.
