Captain Henry Clanchy (1894-1966) was one of the Irish Genealogical Research Society’s earliest members.
During the 1950s he prepared an extensive Card Index of marriages gleaned from some of the Society’s unique manuscript collection and pedigree files.
Given the nature of the material he was consulting, the marriages tend to be those of the fairly well-heeled and well-connected, hence a high proportions of Captains and Majors, Reverends, Sirs, JPs and doctors among the names recorded. Geographically, the Index covers the entire island of Ireland and there are nearly 6,000 entries.
Organised by surname, Captain Clanchy’s Card Index has now been scanned and is being made available to IGRS members in a series of downloadable pdfs.
The card entries for surnames beginning with the letters A to M can be downloaded below. The largest-sized file is just over 1Mb. Most are around 700kb.
