National Library of Ireland Digitisation Project of Parish Registers

The National Library of Ireland, today announced an ambitious digitisation project, which will make all parish registers in its collection available online by summer 2015. The images will be black and white scans of the microfilms for each parish.

Access to the information will be free and through a special website to be launched mid 2015.

    • A word of warning about this project from the NLI – some of the microfilm can be difficult to read due either to the sometimes poor quality of the microfilming or the poor condition of certain registers or even the appalling writing or record keeping in the registers. However it IS a MOST welcome development given that the National Library is so constrained in its funding by a philistine government.
