Irish relatives (Parish Records)

by kimmy-lou @, Friday, November 03, 2017, 12:44 (2446 days ago)

Hi everyone, I was wondering if there is anyone on this forum that has some experience trying to trace irish family members or have experience with different irish names?
I have been trying findmypast and ancestry and not getting much luck. Is there anyone who could give me some pointers? Would be very grateful.

The British Newspaper Archive covers all of Ireland. It can be free-searched and short term subs are available.

Sorry to have to say that a lot were destroyed in 1922 when they were blown up, it's a nightmare looking for them but the Irish National Archives has started to put what it has on line and the information can be searched at no charge, see:
If you know what part of Ireland they came from and look at a range of spellings for the name you might find something but don't build up your hopes too high!

There's hope yet: I have today learned that there is a project called Ireland's Virtual Records Treasury being compiled to try and retrieve some of the information lost, see:
