Catholic Parish Records at the National Library of Ireland
Lynn Palermo at The Armchair Genealogist shared the news that Irish Catholic church records are now available online, for FREE. These parish records are considered the most important source of information on Irish family history prior to the 1901 census. These records have been maintained and available on microfilm since the 1950s, but only in Dublin. This is HUGE! Click here to go to the site.
