Marriage Finder Index hits 50,000 entries

With more than 25,000 marriages recorded, the Irish Genealogical Research Society’s Marriage Finder has now reached 50,000 names. It’s a unique database, compiled by our very own Roz McCutcheon FIGRS, and is fast becoming an invaluable source for references to pre-civil registration marriages in Ireland.

It comprises information gathered from an array of unusual and under utilised sources. Chancery bills, diaries, deeds, marriage settlements, memorial inscriptions, wills, family letters and newspaper cuttings are just a few of the many sources consulted.

Roz is a Fellow of the IGRS and one of its Vice Presidents. Her database is freely available to all, here on the Society’s website. Just click the link above.
