Transcripts and digital images of the originals of these additional records are now available to view following their launch by the Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport, Ms Mary Hanafin, T.D., and the Archbishop of Dublin, the Most Rev. Dr John R.W. Neill, on Wednesday 16 June 2010.
Transcripts of church records for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kerry, some Church of Ireland parishes in Kerry, some Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland parishes in Dublin City, and one Presbyterian congregation in Lucan, County Dublin, are already available on the website.
Work has commenced to complete the computerisation of other Roman Catholic records for Dublin City and the Diocese of Cork and Ross (the latter diocese includes Cork City and all of the parishes in West Cork). It is intended to have elements of this project completed and available online by the end of 2010.
The Irish Genealogy website is now hosted by the Department of Tourism, Culture and Sport. The address of the website is: www.irishgenealogy.ie.
All records on the website are available to search and view free of charge.
