Irish church records online - Dublin and Kerry

Online parish records from the diocese of Dublin and from part of the diocese of Kerry are now available at the Irish Genealogy website
It's a site set up by the Department of Arts Sports and Tourism of the Irish government and has a fully searchable index - and it's free to use.

I've found about 150 Fitzhenrys and relations under various spellings - the most bizarre being FITZHENORERRY. Some of these will undoubtably be duplicates, but it's a good haul nonetheless.

According to the website, there will be more records added this year - the rest of Kerry, and then Cork.

Unfortunately I haven't found any relations to people I already had in the database, but if you find your relative in this index, I'd be very grateful if you would drop me a line and let me know how they fit into your family.

Why not subscribe to this blog and get the updates sent to your inbox? Or send us an email about your Fitz(-)henry family links.

  1. Thank you for posting this. Part of my family came from Kerry.

    This is a kind favor from the people of Ireland to the people of Irish descent around the globe.
