Survival of Parish Registers

Survival of Parish Registers

Almost half of the surviving registers were destroyed in 1922 and others have been lost at earlier periods. However, much of the lost information survives in transcripts and abstracts. The most recent published listing of parish registers is Noel Reid (ed.), A table of Church of Ireland parochial records and copies (Irish Family History Society, Naas, 1994).

In addition useful genealogical information may be had from other parish records especially vestry minute books, churchwardens’ account books and cess applotment books.
