This page lists resources for the main repositories of Irish records and archives.
On June 30, 1922, over 700 years of Ireland's history was lost during the Irish Civil War when the Public Record Office in Dublin was destroyed. Archivists are recreating the archive from duplicate records in other countries and making them available through the Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland.
Don't discount the UK National Archives as a source of information as Ireland has been ruled from England for centuries.
Other records, that may be of interest, are kept at county level and may be located in local libraries, history societies etc. To locate addresses and contact details for these go to the County Resources & FH Societies tab above.
The following books are available for use at the State Library of South Australia.
