RootsIreland adds 18,000 more RC parish records from Co. Kerry

RootsIreland has announced the addition of more than 18,000 Roman Catholic baptismal and marriage records from County Kerry. They have been transcribed from locally-held parish registers by local genealogists, providing a level of accuracy not always seen in other collections. You'll see below that most of the new parish records also extend to the end of the 19th century and beyond; most online collections stop at 1880/1.

These are the parishes and span of years covered in the new records:

RC Baptisms 

  • Beaufort baptisms 1844-1902 (4028 records) 
  • Duagh baptisms, 1800-1906 (9164 records) 

RC Marriages

  • Ballylongford marriages, 1824-1900 (1734 records)
  • Castlemaine marriages, 1804-1900 (2262 records)
  • Beaufort marriages, 1843-1896 (834 records)
