Savings on 12-month subs to until end of March is giving motivated Irish genealogists the chance to celebrate St Patrick's Day (and Irish Family History Month) with a generous discount of 25% on the standard price of a 12-month subscription. The offer will remain available until 11:59pm (Irish/British Summer Time) on Sunday 31 March 2024.

The RootsIreland database is managed by the Irish Family History Foundation (IFHF), a not-for-profit organisation that heads up a network of more than 30 genealogy and heritage centres across the island. It currently holds more than 23 million records and continues to grow.

While this database holds civil BMDs, census records, headstone inscriptions and census substitutes, RootsIreland is probably most appreciated for its fabulous collection of church records.

Its Roman Catholic church record collection is widely considered the most complete and most accurate set available online, and its impressive holding of Protestant records including Church of Ireland, Baptist, Methodist, Congregational, Quaker and Presbyterian records is second to none. Most of the Protestant records are not accessible online anywhere else.

You can find out more about this offer by clicking the orange 25% OFF button above, or go directly to the website to explore the online sources for each county, or to subscribe.
