Genealogical Records: Irish Source Records, 1500s-1800s



The information collected here is especially valuable since nearly all of Ireland’s pre-1901 census records were lost in a 1922 fire at the Public Records Office in Dublin. This database includes extensively researched reconstructions of the 1841 and 1851 censuses as well as transcriptions of the surviving 1851 census fragments for County Cork. In addition, you’ll find record of wills that were abstracted or copied before the fire.


Listings Include:

  • Dates and details of vital events
