IGRS Marriage Finder rushes past 50,000 milestone

With more than 25,000 unions entered in the database, the Irish Genealogical Research Society's Marriage Finder has now reached 50,000 names.

The Marriage Finder is a unique resource, put together by Roz McCutcheon FIGRS, and is already becoming invaluable to those seeking references to pre-civil registration marriages of Irish brides and grooms.

It comprises information gathered from an array of unusual and under-utilised sources. Chancery bills, diaries, deeds, marriage settlements, memorial inscriptions, wills, family letters and newspaper cuttings are just a few of the many sources consulted.

The database is free to access on the Society's website,
