Registry of Deeds Index rushes past 150,000 milestone

Nick Reddan, the founder and manager of the Registry of Deeds Index Project, has advised that the project has galloped past another milestone. Here's what he told Irish Genealogy News:

"Congratulations are due to all the volunteers as the project passes another significant milestone.  We now have 150,467 index entries from 18,147 memorials in the database. This result is only possible because of the magnificent efforts of our volunteers.  Their efforts are recognised here.

I am sure all will join me in applauding the efforts of the volunteers which continue to make the extensive archive of the Registry of Deeds more accessible to the genealogical community."

As the Index continues to grow it is fast becoming an essential stop for all Irish family historians, so Well Done, indeed, to all the volunteers.
