Ancestry adds Web: Ireland, Baptism Index, 1571-1912 database

Ancestry has web linked to 2,068,308 index records published by Ireland's Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. The source link is http://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/

Content is heavy on Dublin records; of 42,258 records for surname Kelly, 37,035 are for parishes in Dublin. There's also content from counties Carlow, Cork, and Kerry.

A reminder, Ancestry Web Records "are published online by entities other than Ancestry.com. What you see on Ancestry.com is an index of basic information (such as names, dates, places and family members) that aids in searching. Often you can find out much more by visiting the source website, including references, publication information, comments, historical context, and even images.
In some cases you may need to perform a search on the external website to find the record you’re looking for."
