National Archives of Ireland

As we research our families with Irish ancestry, there are resources available to assist us. At the start of their Civil War in June 1922, almost all of their archives were destroyed by fire. Therefore, most of the records now held at the National Archives of Ireland are mainly from 19th and 20th century. There are a few that date back to the 13th century.

Ireland is a beautiful country. It has green rolling hills and rivers that are stunning. When the Irish had their potato crops rot and drought became too hard to live with, the Irish began to immigrate in the mid-1800’s. I can just imagine how hard it was for some of them to leave this country of their heritage.

Here are some resources that the National Archives of Ireland has you can check out to aid you in your Genealogy (some are only available in the Reading Room of the National Archives):
