(Irish) Registry of Deeds Index Project: Latest update

The latest update to the Registry of Deeds Index Project sees the number of indexed entries rise to 310,805. They have been extracted from 33,891 memorials of deeds. addition the Townland Index has grown to 65,666 entries and the Grantor Index to 28,022.

The site is run entirely by volunteers, with contributors mostly accessing the free online virtual microfilms of the memorial volumes via the free FamilySearch website or transcribing from the actual volumes at the Registry of Deeds in Dublin.

The more volunteer contributions, the greater the coverage in the Index, which is free for researchers to access. Can you help grow the Index? If so, please find out more about the Project here.
