This update was sent to us from Ireland over the weekend:
The Irish Genealogical Research Society’s Marriage Finder has now reached 50,000 names. It’s unique and is fast becoming an invaluable source for references to pre-civil registration marriages in Ireland.
It comprises information gathered from an array of unusual and under utilised sources. Chancery bills, diaries, deeds, marriage settlements, memorial inscriptions, wills, family letters and newspaper cuttings are just a few of the many sources consulted.
The database is online and free to use on the website of the IGRS. Founded in 1936, the Society is the world’s oldest dedicated to the pursuit of Irish family history.
