Five free Dublin genealogy databases return online

All hail John Grenham, professional genealogist, database creater, author and all-round good egg.

Following the removal of Dublin City Council's 'Heritage Databases' from the dublincity.ie platform, John has today uploaded his own back-up copies (he created them) of five of the most genealogically useful databases to his Irish Ancestors site.

They are:

  • Dublin Voters 1938-1957
  • Dublin Municipal Voters 1899, 1908-1915 
  • Dublin Graveyards Directory 
  • Dublin Cemeteries - burial registers from Clontarf, Drimnagh and Finglas
  • Dublin Freemen to 1774

These databases are now free to search and view at this page: https://www.johngrenham.com/dcla/.

This is a temporary step while DCC overcomes its compliance issues. See John's blogpost – Some of me oul' darlin' databases are back online – for more details.
