RootsIreland.ie offers 20% savings on 12-month subscriptions

RootsIreland.ie is offering a 20% saving on 12-month subscriptions to its database to those who order one before 11:59pm (GMT+1) on Tuesday 16 July 2024.

The RootsIreland database is managed by the Irish Family History Foundation (IFHF), a not-for-profit organisation that has been co-ordinating a network of 32 genealogy and heritage centres across the island for 30+ years. It currently holds more than 23 million records and continues to expand.

In the first six months of this year, the database has grown by more than 83,500 records from Kerry, Monaghan and Tipperary, and there's plenty more to come in the second half of the year.

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 while the Roman Catholic collections typically extend beyond those in other online holdings by more than 20 years.
