IGRS Early Irish Marriage Index updated

Following quickly on the heels of a recent update to its Early Irish Deaths Index (see blogpost), the Irish Genealogical Research Society has added several thousand records to its Early Irish Marriage Index.

It now holds more than 80,000 marriage records, and names some 177,000 individuals. Free to members and non-members alike, it can be searched here.

All the records in the Society's Early Irish indexes pre-date 1864 and the full introduction of the civil registration system, and the entries are noted from obscure and underused sources. The three indexes are managed by Roz McCutcheon FIGRS and continue to grow thanks to the work of IGRS volunteers.

The Early Irish Births Index will be updated next month.
