Ancestry adds Irish Probate and Marriage Licence Index


115,989 index records are now online through Ancestry for Dublin, Ireland, Probate Record and Marriage Licence Index, 1270-1858

"The vast majority of records in this database are index entries extracted from wills, letters of administration, acts of probate, marriage licenses, and other records within the Diocese of Dublin. These indexes were included as appendices to two volumes (the 26th and the 30th) of the Reports of the Deputy Keeper of the Public Records and Keeper of the State Papers in Ireland. These appendices were titled
Index to the Act or Grant Books, and to Original Wills, of the Diocese of Dublin to the year 1800.
