MyHeritage adds index to 61,500 Jewish births in Ireland, 1807-2018

MyHeritage has added nearly 6million records Jewish historical records from 28 collections. It includes an index to 61,503 birth records of Jewish people born in Ireland. The earlist record I found related to one David Abraham Stibbe who was born in 1807, and the most recent was in 2018.

As I don't have a subscription to MyHeritage I can't offer you more insight on this latest upload. Search results provide name, birth date and birthplace. I don't think there are links to images.

The new collection includes records from a number of European countries. Some contain birth, marriage, death, tax, electoral and immigration records and obituaries, and further instalments will be added in due course, including records from North America, the Middle East, North Africa and beyond.

Whether additional Irish records, perhaps for marriage or death events, will be forthcoming in the future, I don't know.

The collection has been provided to MyHeritage by JewishGen, Inc.
