The National Archives of Ireland


Welcome to the National Archives Genealogy Website. From this page, you can now access the Census Records for 1901 and 1911, Census survivals for 1821-51, Census Search forms for 1841-51, the Tithe Applotment Books from 1823 to 1837, the Soldiers’ Wills from 1914 to 1917, and the Calendars of Wills and Administrations from 1858 to 1922.

From 15 September 2016, you can access six major new record series on this site:

Prerogative and diocesan copies of some wills and indexes to others, 1596 – 1858

Diocesan and Prerogative Marriage Licence Bonds Indexes, 1623 – 1866

Catholic qualification & convert rolls, 1700 – 1845

Valuation Office house, field, tenure and quarto books 1824 – 1856

Shipping agreements and crew lists, 1863 – 1921

Will Registers 1858 – 1900

All of these records are free to access, through searchable databases and linked images of relevant pages. Eventually, we hope that the site will contain all of the important and easily accessible genealogical material in the custody of the National Archives.
