Church Record Sunday: An Irish Guide to Church Records

Got Irish ancestors? Then you might want to check out this wonderful guide to Irish church records. An Irish Genealogical Source. A Guide to Church Records is a PDF document published  by the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland with 337 pages of information about church records. This Guide provides a reference to church records located throughout Ireland. The Guide states it has tried to include "churches within each civil parish" (page 32).

The Guide provides a history of church records in Ireland and a history of various denominations including Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, Protestant and Church of Ireland. From there it provides information on various parishes and where records are located.

This is a must-have reference if you have Irish ancestors.
