The Irish Genealogical Research Society’s Early Irish Marriage Index has been updated again. It now contains over 58,000 references to alternative sources for Irish marriages and approximately 130,000 names of brides, grooms and their parents.
This database is still being added to and new records are uploaded every month, so if you haven’t yet found any ancestors in it, do please check back regularly. The Early Irish Marriage Index is freely available to all, not just members of the IGRS.
We’re sure you’ll agree that the Index is a fantastic resource which is helping genealogists worldwide to reconnect with their Irish ancestors, despite Ireland’s lack of extensive early primary records.
Happy ancestor hunting!
