2019 List of Church of Ireland parish registers published

The RCB Library has revised and updated its List of Parish Registers – an essential and free aid for any Irish family historian (download here)

It includes accessions from 23 parish unions made in 2018 and up to the end of August 2019, resulting in detailed lists for a total of 1,159 parishes across the island.

While there were some baptism, marriage and burial registers included in the January 2018 to August 2019 intake, the bulk of the additions to the collection features vestry, minute and preacher's books, ledgers, photographs, Sunday School registers, and other miscellaneous items. Details of the latest revision have been published as September's Archive of the Month, here.
