I don’t normally blog about Irish records as our society really only deals with Catholic Family History for England, Wales, and Scotland, but I found out about these newly available records from the The British GENES Blog and quite a few readers will be interested in them.

Roman Catholic parish records from County Carlow have been transcribed and made available on RootsIreland. The following are the parishes available, followed by year ranges for baptisms (146,000 entries) and then marriages (58,000 records):

  • Bagenalstown,  1820 – 1899,  1820 – 1899
  • Ballon,  1781 – 1899,  1778 – 1899
  • Borris,  1782 – 1899,  1782 – 1899
  • Cathedral of The Assumption,  1744 – 1899,  1769 – 1899
  • Clonegal,  1831 – 1899,  1800 – 1899
  • Clonmore,  1819 – 1899,  1813 – 1899
  • Graiguecullen/Killeshin, 1808 – 1899,  1820 – 1899
  • Hacketstown,  1823 – 1899,  1824 – 1899
  • Leighlinbridge,  1783 – 1899,  1783 – 1899
  • Myshall,  1846 – 1899,  1812 – 1899
  • Rathvilly,  1797 – 1899,  1804 – 1899
  • St. Mullins,  1796 – 1899,  1804 – 1899
  • Tinryland,  1806 – 1899,  1813 – 1899
  • Tullow,  1739 – 1899,  1748 – 1899

The digitised images for these and all Roman Catholic parish registers up to 1880 or 1900 (varies between parishes) will be available on the National Library of Ireland website in the middle of this year, though will not be indexed, only browsable.

RootsIreland is a subscription site, not a free site. The British GENES Blog is well worth a look, always lots of useful information.
