Irish records

From 1800 until 1922, Ireland was part of the UK so there are strong similarities between the records available for both countries. However, because they were one country, it means there are no official immigration records covering travel between the two islands. Another main stumbling block for those researching their Irish roots is the fact that during the Civil War of 1922, the Irish Public Record Office was burned to the ground. With it went Ireland’s 19th-century census returns, two thirds of the parish registers of the Church of Ireland and all the wills probated in Ireland. for more click here
