They are having a major upload of new records at Ancestry!
They have now added
a major series of collections of Roman Catholic records from parishes across
Ireland which include the following :
1) Ireland, Select Catholic Birth and
Baptism Registers, 1763-1912. Records sourced from 73 parishes
2) Ireland, Select Catholic Marriage Registers, 1775-1912. Records sourced from 62 parishes
3) Ireland, Select Catholic Death and Burial Registers, 1767-1912. Records sourced from 19 parishes
4) Ireland, Select Catholic Confirmation Registers, 1775-1912. Records sourced from 12 parishes.
While these records clearly do not cover all parishes they are still a very welcome addition to Ancestry's range of records and access to Ancestry is free at all our library branches. For those with Irish ancestry, happy hunting!
