Genealogy

Genealogy centres nationwide


The county-based genealogy centres listed below hold indexes of parish registers for the whole of their county unless otherwise indicated, in addition to other genealogical sources. The centres provide a research service based on the indexes they hold but do not normally allow members of the public direct access to them.

 

Please note that the National Archives does not accept any responsibility for either the work done or the fees charged by any of the centres listed. Should there be any changes to the listings below, please contact the National Archives at mail@nationalarchives.ie for corrections to be made.
