Church of Ireland Parish - County Cork

Church Records are the primary genealogical source for pre-civil registration. (Registration began in 1837). They include births, christenings, marriages, deaths and burials. These records were kept in registers, commonly called Parish Registers. Each Parish kept it's own records. Catholic Parish Registers mainly contain christening and marriage records. The Family History Center has microfilm copies of many Catholic parish registers, search under IRELAND, [county], [parish].

Before you can search the Parish Registers you need to know which Parish your ancestors lived in and what was their religious affiliation. Most Parishes were villages with a church and a priest. Larger towns have more than one Parish.

The Church of Ireland was the state church, the parish records were considered state records. In 1876 a law was passed requiring the Church of Ireland parish registers be sent to the Public Record Office in Dublin. In 1878 the law was changed so that Parishes could keep their records, so not all records were sent to Dublin. The Public Record office burned in 1922, thus many parish records were saved because they were still in their parish.

At this time the FHL has very few church records from County Cork (keep checking back as they are always microfilming new sources)
