Emerald Ancestors relaunches with new records
Check out the new-look site
After two or three years without any updates, the Emerald Ancestors website has been relaunched with a modern design, a new pricing structure, and plans for the release of new records to its database.

Getting the ball rolling is the upload of transcribed baptismal records for Faughanvale or St Canice’s Parish Church in the village of Eglinton, Co. Londonderry, which forms part of the Church of Ireland Diocese of Derry & Raphoe.

Dating from 1805 to 1885, records from the Baptismal Registers include the child’s name, date of birth and baptism; the father’s name and mother’s forename; and the townload in which the family lived. Occasional annotations in the registers about the family are also included.

Marriage records 1845–1935 for the same church are already included in Emerald Ancestor's marriage collection from 1845 to 1935.

In addition to new records, the refreshed site has a number of free resources available to family historians, as well as a tree builder.

It's good to see the site back!
