RootsIreland adds 7,643 RC baptisms to its County Kerry database has added a further 7,643 Roman Catholic baptismal records to its County Kerry database.

The new records are for Kilgarvan Parish, which sits on the Kerry side of the border with west County Cork and is about 10 miles east of Kenmare. It rubs up against the Cork parishes of Bantry, Iveleary and Ballybourney.

The baptism records date from 1818 to 1895. They join some 1,300 marriage records covering the same dates, which were uploaded last September. All have been transcribed from locally held registers. Those dated up to 1880 link to the National Library of Ireland's online images of Catholic registers.
