Irish parish records collection

  • Collection
  • Microfilmed [196-?] (originally created 1671-1900)

The Maritime History Archive commenced the collection of Irish parish records during the period 1973-1980. The parish records document the genealogical origins of Newfoundland families whose ancestors had emigrated from Ireland before the twentieth century.

The collection consists of microfilmed copies of many Roman Catholic parishes in the Irish counties of Clare, Cork, Kerry, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wexford and Donegal, as well as many Church of Ireland parishes in counties Cork and Waterford. There are also vestry books for two parishes in County Clare: Castletown Arra and Killahoe.
