CD: Ireland, Volume 1


This CD-ROM contains electronic image reprints of the following six books of Irish history and genealogy:

Marriages in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tuam, Ireland, 1821-1829 - Helen M. Murphy & James R. Reilly, C.G.R.S. (1993). The diocese of Tuam encompasses the southern part of Co. Mayo, the northern area of Co. Galway and two civil parishes along the western border of Co. Roscommon. Groom, bride, and parish organize these Irish marriage records (almost four thousand) in three different sections. The index lists men's names only.

Index to the Prerogative Wills of Ireland, 1536-1810 - Sir Arthur Vicars (1897). These wills proven in the Prerogative Court are most important because they contain testamentary devises from all parts of Ireland, commencing in 1536, and continuing to 1858. A separate Index to the Alliances and Aliases mentioned in the wills is added at the end, where will also be found a catalogue of some one hundred wills, called the Hawkins Collection, reprinted from the Fourteenth Report of the Deputy Keeper of the Public Records in Ireland.

Records Relating to the Dioceses of Ardagh & Clonmacnoise - Rev. John Canon Monahan, D. D., V.F. (1886). This large work contains records relating to the dioceses of Ardagh and Clonmacnoise.

A Topographical Dictionary of Ireland (Volume One & Two) - Samuel Lewis (1984). This is a record of numerous subscribers, that, in the discharge of their arduous duties, they have unremittingly endeavored to present every fact of importance tending to illustrate the local history, or convey useful information respecting the past or present state, of Ireland.

Appendix to the Twenty-Sixth Report of the Deputy Keeper of the Public Records & Keeper of the State Papers in Ireland - Dublin. (1895). The records in this volume are those of the Diocese (as opposed to the Ecclesiastic Province) of Dublin, an ancient jurisdiction which today encompasses all of the city of Dublin and County Dublin, as well as parts of Counties Carlow, Kildare, Leix, Wexford, and Wicklow. Of the nearly 60,000 records indexed (referring to about 100,000 people), nearly half are marriage licenses.
