Ireland's Largest Family Records Database
Over 20 million records online
This website contains a unique set of Irish family history records including Birth, Death, Marriage and Gravestone records the majority of which are only available online on this website and cannot be found online elsewhere.
This website was created by the Irish Family History Foundation (I.F.H.F.), an all Ireland not-for-profit organization, that is co-ordinating the creation of a database of Irish genealogical sources to assist those who wish to trace their Irish ancestry.
Its county genealogy centre members are based in local communities and work with local volunteers, historical societies, clergy, local authorities, county libraries and government agencies to develop and preserve a database of genealogical records for their county. By using this website you are supporting that work and the communities from which your ancestors originated.
This website provides access to an index of Irish records and digitised versions of the original source material; it does not contain images of original documents.
The Irish Family History Foundation has been the coordinating body for a network of county genealogy centres on the island of Ireland for over twenty five years. The genealogy centresí databases include parish church records of baptisms, marriages and deaths, census returns and gravestone inscriptions. Millions of these records are searchable online, providing a unique resource for family historians not available on any other website. New records will be added as the computerization of sources continues in the local genealogy centres.
