More Irish Petty Sessions records on the way

FindMyPast Ireland has announced that some three million more records from the Irish Petty Sessions Court will be released next month.

The first tranche of the 15 million record set, which relates only to courts in the 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland, was released back in February (see report). That release consisted of 1.2million records, and was hugely enjoyed by Irish genealogists for the colour it added to their research.

So it is great to hear that another batch is on the way, with the remaining 10 million or so records to follow during the course of the year.

Find out more about the value of this huge resource, which covers 1858-1924, on my website's Irish Petty Sessions Courts page.
