Great summer for Wicklow weddings

Wicklow Family History Centre kicks off Irish Genealogy Toolkit's brand new Insight series.

My interview with Catherine Wright, acting archivist and manager of the Centre, details some of the quirks of Wicklow family history, provides some useful tips for beginner genealogists and explains the approach she takes to each commission for genealogy research.

She also reveals that Wicklow's church wedding records, which have already been transcribed, will be joining the county's baptism records on the RootsIreland website during the summer.

If your ancestors lived in Wicklow, don't miss the interview, see Welcome to the Garden's Centre.

Toolkit's Insight series takes an indepth look at Ireland’s individual genealogy centres, county archives and specialised repositories. More features are in the pipe and will be announced shortly.
