RCB Library updates List of Parish Registers with recent additions

The RCB Library has again updated its colour-coded list of parish records in the care of its archive in Dublin. 

Among the new additions are significant updates from the following parishes: 

  • Aughrim – baptisms now run from 1814-1992, marriages from 1815-2014, and burials from 1822-1991

  • Adare – baptisms now run 1826-2001, marriages  1826-2007, and burials 1826-2001 

  • Kilmallock – baptisms now run 1882-2001, marriages 1846-1956, and burials 1883-1995 

  • Ahascragh -- baptisms now run 1787-1998, marriages 1795-2009, and burials 1787-1998.

The list of parish records provides details of some 1218 register collections. It records the parishes for which some or all of the registers have not survived, the registers (or transcripts of them) held by the RCBL and others, and points researchers to online sources, where available.
