Welcome to Genealogy Projects in Ireland








A bit of history and links to genealogy projects in Ireland

Irish Genealogy and History societies have existed  for years in various cities and towns in Ireland.

Most records were hand written, and with help of new technologies are being digitized for permanent archiving.

The first internet connections between researchers arrived in late 1970 as Bulletin Boards used until email systems became available to the public.

About 1995 the first genealogy website went online under the name Genuki.

The next website also went online in 1995 and it was known as Leitrim-Roscommon.

The first full Ireland Genealogy Project started with   one county in March 1996 as Leitrim. By 1997 that project known as IRGenWeb and had grown to 32 counties.

Once the flood gates opened, many new projects came online and some of them are listed below.
