IGRS updates its Early Irish Deaths Index

The Irish Genealogical Research Society (IGRS) has updated its Early Irish Deaths Index with another 5,670 additional entries, many of them sourced from Walker’s Hibernian Magazine. The update brings the number of entries in this index to 11,100.

This index is one of a trio created and managed by the IGRS recording Early Births, Marriages and Deaths sourced from lesser or rarely used sources. The term 'Early' means all the entries relate to events prior to civil registration in 1845/64.

Only IGRS members get full access to the Early Irish Deaths Index database. However, a restricted but free Surname-Only Search of the database can be made by non-members; such a search tells you how many entries in the database match your search criteria. It will not provide all the details of those matched records. Find out more here.

All three IGRS indexes will be updated during the course of this month. I'll bring you news as the other two happen.
