Genealogy goldmine Church of Ireland Parish Registers to go online
By Frances Mulraney
Does your Irish family have links to the Church of Ireland? You could find out more about their past with the help of soon-to-be digitized records.
One of the wonders of the digital age is how the ability to digitize records has made it easier than ever to explore your genealogy no matter where in the world you are and now it’s set to become even easier if your Irish family was within the Church of Ireland.
On September 10, Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Josepha Madigan TD announced that over $110,000 (€100,000) has been granted toward the digitization of Church of Ireland parish registers, held in the Representative Church Body Library, as part of the Department’s digitization scheme.
