Church of Ireland Home



The archives of the Church of Ireland, and particularly parochial registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials, are a primary source for genealogists and family historians. Although many registers were destroyed in the past, especially in the fire in the Public Record Office of Ireland in 1922, many others have survived in a number of custodies and are available to researchers. 

The staff of the RCB Library will be glad to offer advice on all queries concerning Church of Ireland archives and manuscripts and related printed and reference works. It should be stressed, however, that they will not undertake genealogical research on behalf of readers.
A small number of parish registers have been digitised and are available to view on www.ireland.anglican.org/arp and www.ireland.anglican.org/genealogy/registers.
This digital record is a work in progress.

For information from registers of baptisms, marriages and burials from parishes in the city of Dublin, and in counties Carlow and Kerry researchers should consult www.irishgenealogy.ie. This is a free government website which is maintained by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

If you have any genealogical queries, or would like to request a search, please read the information on our Online Store: https://store.ireland.anglican.org/genealogy and if necessary order a search.
