About: The National Library of Ireland holds microfilm copies of over 3500 church registers from parishes in Ireland. The library has now digitised these registers as images which provide records of baptisms and marriages from the majority of Catholic parishes in Ireland and Northern Ireland up to around 1880. The available registers are not searchable by individual’s names. Instead, they are browseable by diocese, parish and date, searchable by parish and it is possible to zoom from a country map to parish level. This blog entry relates to the parish of Baltinglass, a small part of which extends into County Kildare.

Contents:  These registers cover baptisms (1807-1881) and marriages (1810-1880) and deaths (1824-1830). These date ranges are indicative only and coverage may be incomplete. Please refer to the NLI site for specific coverage.
