Researching your Irish Ancestors is getting easier!

There are some very useful sites available now to research your Irish Ancestors -
This site is hosted by the Department of Tourism, Culture and Sport. At present there are 1,334,000 Church records of Baptism, Marriage and Death available to view free of charge on this website. These Church records were computerised with funding from the Department of Tourism, Culture and Sport and through the work of the Dublin Heritage Group and Kerry Genealogical Research Centre. This Department continues to work with Dublin City Public Library to bring about the completion of the computerisation of the Church records for Dublin City up to 1900. This Department is also collaborating with Carlow County Library and Cork County Library in the completion of their Church records and these records will be available to view free of charge through this site in the near future.
This site provides informative Assessment Reports, detailing all findings and where relevant the best way to proceed. It is an independent genealogical research company, Genealogy Ireland, and uses all available genealogy sources for Ireland. They have an excellent working relationship with the many family history centres and local historians.
A commercial website with links and advertising. Can be frustrating to use.
This is an Origins Network site and offers subscription access to key Irish genealogy records online featuring:
· the definitive version of Griffith's Valuation
· Censuses, Wills, Militia and Burial records, Passenger lists, Electoral registers etc.
· the Irish Origins Image Library
· Irish genealogy guide
It does also have an extensive list of accessible collections .
