Cork Past and Present

Yet another example of the value of local libraries for the genealogist, especially if they move into the online digital age, is in the online collection Cork Past and Present.
It came to my attention via a tweet pointing to an item on Claire Santry's blog on the addition of a few Cork city directories to the collection. There are now 25 spanning 1753 to 1945.
Don't stop at the directories. Cork Past and Present has a genealogy section including:

Gillman's Index to the Marriage Licence Bonds of the Diocese of Cork and Ross, an index of marriage licence bonds made in Cork and Ross between the years 1623 and 1750.

Green's Index to Marriage Licence Bonds: Cloyne for marriage licence bonds made in the diocese of Cloyne between the years 1630 and 1800.

Phillimore's Irish Wills - Volume II: Cork & Ross, Cloyne with references to an estimated 6,400 wills from as early as 1548 to 1800.

There's more worth the attention of the Cork interest genealogist.
