Plans to Digitise Parish Records

At present, the National Library of Ireland holds a microfilm collection of parish registers of births and marriages for almost every Roman Catholic Parish in Ireland.

At present, the only way to see the actual register entry is a trip to the Library on Kildare Street in Dublin - not always a feasible option!

In an exciting development, the Library has announced the tendering for the task of digitising these registers.

At some point in the near future, it is hoped that registers will be fully searchable online, with the option to see a digital copy of the actual register page.

This would be a very welcome development.
