The Irish Genealogical Research Society’s Early Marriage Index was updated this week with several thousand new records “from obscure and underused sources,” bringing the database to over 80,000 marriages.
The work of Roz McCutcheon and the IGRS volunteers continues. An update to the Death Index was launched in June and an update to the Birth Index planned for August.
If you’re new to the IGRS indexes, read McCutcheon’s introduction to get the most benefit. Start your search of the Early Marriage Index here: www.irishancestors.ie/?page_id=1926.
