Irish Family History Foundation Online Genealogy Databases

In celebration of John Grenham's visit to Ottawa, a reminder of the Irish Genealogical Online Record Search System (ORS).

Organised by the Irish Family History Foundation, the co-ordinating body for a network of government approved genealogical research centres in the Republic of Ireland (Eire) and in Northern Ireland, ORS has almost 40 million Irish Ancestral records, primarily Church births (baptisms), marriages and deaths, computerised and searchable online, a total of 15,616,784 records. Derry is to be added shortly.

The indexes, listing surname, first name, year and county of all records online is yours to search freely. To view a detailed record you can purchase credit online for instant access at a cost of €5.00 per record.
