Westmeath Genealogy completes lockdown project

Westmeath Genealogy, the Irish Family History Foundation's genealogy centre at the Dún na Sí Heritage Park near Moate, has continued working on its 'lockdown project', adding additional data to its online marriage records for the Roman Catholic parish of Clara & Horseleap, which straddles the county's border with Offaly. reported her on IrishGenealogyNews at the time, two batches of additional data were uploaded to RootsIreland's Westmeath database in April. And now the final instalment has joined them.

The project involved adding the names of witnesses and the precise date of each marriage to the transcriptions already available via the site (these details were not included as part of the original transcription of the local registers).

Any annotations by the priest to individual entries have also been transcribed.

The fully detailed transcriptions of marriage records from this parish now span from November 1821 to April 1882
