On Wednesday 16 June in St Werburgh’s church, Dublin, the Minister for Tourism, Culture and Sport, Mary Hanafin TD, launched the second phase of the free genealogical website, irishgenealogy.ie which is being developed by her department in association with the National Archives.
This second phase consists of Church of Ireland registers of baptisms, marriages and burials from parishes in the city of Dublin, Co. Kerry and Co. Carlow. All these records had been transferred to the Representative Church Body Library in Dublin, which houses the archives of the Church of Ireland, and the staff of the RCB Library facilitated the digitization of the registers which was undertaken by Eneclann. Copies of the scanned records were presented by the Minister to the Archbishop of Dublin, Dr John Neill for deposit in the RCB Library.
