Webinar Wednesday: Registry of deeds – Ireland
June 19 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
$15 – $20
Looking for more advanced research into Irish records? Then this is the webinar for you. The Registry of Deeds is a little-known repository of records dating from 1709. While the original purpose of the Registry of Deeds was to enforce rules limiting the land transactions of Catholics, even before the removal of these rules in 1782, many Catholics of modest means and representatives of Catholic families appear in the memorials. You might also find marriage settlements, leases, mortgages, and wills. The books into which the deeds were copied are available online for free at FamilySearch, as well as the Grantors index and a land index. You will learn how to navigate through these, and also all about the wonderful Registry of Deeds Index Project web site.
