Nearly 250,000 Waterford marriages now online has today added an additional 242,000 marriage records to its Waterbase database, making a county total of just over 245,000 searchable marriage records.

The new marriage records cover both Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland registers. There's a list of all the parishes now covered here.

The site additionally holds more than half a million baptism and birth records for Waterford. All the baptisms are from Roman Catholic registers.

Because parish boundaries sometimes cross county lines, Waterford's records will also be of interest to those researching ancestors from southern parts of county Tipperary.
