About: Perhaps Halloween is an appropriate occasion on which to showcase this publication. Gravestones have obvious genealogical value but in this book the author highlights the artistic quality and the social and religious background to the creation of headstones in 18th century Wicklow. Many of the examples shown are located in the southern and western half of the county. This book was published by the Heritage Office of Wicklow County Council as one of the outcomes of the County Wicklow Heritage Plan. It is lavishly illustrated with colour photographs in an A4 landscape format.

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 Tomacork in West Wicklow.

Contents:  These registers cover baptisms and marriages from 1785 to 1888. This date range is indicative only and coverage may be incomplete. Please refer to the NLI site for specific coverage.
