Baptism/Birth Records

Organized by Registration District
Organized by Barony

Baptism and birth records were recorded different ways over the years in Ireland. Prior to 1864 the only place Catholic births or marriages were recorded was in church parish registers. Starting in 1864, civil registration of births, marriages and deaths was required by the government, and were organized by registration district and volume.

This presents problems for organization here, and means the researcher must check the multiple ways we "file" the data.

How we organize it here is determined by the source and by the researcher. Some of the submitted records are from books where the author has listed them by barony and civil parish. Those from church records are by church parish and can cover more than one civil parish, and sometimes more than one barony. Sometimes the data is from civil registration, and is organized by registration district.

Also note that some birth records of a specific family surname can be found under Assorted Records Submitted by Surname.
