RCB Library updates parish register listing with recent acquisitions
The Representative Church Body Library has updated its free to download List of Church of Ireland Parish Registers.

This is a colour-coded resource for researchers to find out which parish registers survive, and where they are held – by the Library, other archives, local custody etc. It was relaunched last summer following a joint project with the Irish Genealogical Research Society, which saw notes added to identify online availability.

This latest edition of the list incorporates a number of additions to the Library's parish register holding (see below) since last summer.
