Dunbullogue cemetery registers added to Cork's digital archives

Cork City and County Archives (CCCA) has released the burial registers of Dunbullogue Cemetery. The parish, near Carrignavar, is about 10km north of Cork City and the registers cover the years 1896 to 1988. They can be downloaded in pdf format from the Digital Archive page of the CCCA site.

While Dunbullogue is the newcomer to Cork's digital archive, it's worth mentioning that two other sets of cemetery registers are also available. The registers for Cobh (Queenstown) Cemetery from 1879 to 1907 contains records of both Protestant and Catholic burials from the Cobh area and from adjacent areas such as Spike Island and Haulbowline Naval Base. In addition to the usual details, these registers sometimes include the occupation and place of birth of the deceased.

Rathcooney (new) Cemetery Records 1896-1941 complete the line up from CCCA. This cemetery is located in Glanmire, about 7km east of the Cork City.
