Registry of Deeds Index Project: latest updates

http://irishdeedsindex.net/index.html
The Registry of Deeds Index Project has been updated with more entries. It now holds 225,142 index entries from 25,551 memorials of deeds, and its three Indexes are free to search:

Memorial Search  |  Grantors' Index  |  Townland Index

In addition, Nick Reddan FIGRS, the manager of the volunteer-led project, has written and presented a new guide to using the virtual microfilms of Registry of Deeds books that were recently* released on FamilySearch.org. It's sufficiently detailed for new users of this valuable record collection to make headway.
