RESEARCH IN IRELAND.
My ancestor was not Catholic, where would I find parish records for him / her?
Church of Ireland : Unfortunately many original church records were destroyed in the 1922 Public Record Office fire. Some original registers are held in the National Archives of Ireland
, others are in the Representative Church Body Library
while some are retained in the parish. The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland
also holds many original and copy registers.
Presbyterian: Enquiries regarding Presbyterian records can be addressed to the Presbyterian Historical Society.
Methodist: Prior to the 1810’s, records of Methodist births, marriages and deaths are found in Church of Ireland registers. For details of surviving registers after that date, contact the Methodist church in the area closest to your area of research. For addresses of Methodist churches in Ireland, please consult the Methodist Church in Ireland website.
The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland holds a county-by-county listing of surviving registers and their locations for the Ulster Counties.
Quaker: For Quaker records, contact the Historical Library of the Religious Society of Friends.
Jewish: For information on Jewish records, contact the Irish Jewish Museum, 3-4 Walworth Street (off Victoria St.), South Circular Road, Dublin 8. Tel/Fax: +353 1 490 1857
