 Destruction

Many Irish historical and genealogical records were destroyed by explosion and fire in the Public Record Office in Dublin in 1922.


1,000 Years

Some Irish families have documented pedigrees which extend back over 1,000 years: the oldest in western Europe.


 The Average

Most Irish people can expect to trace their ancestry back to Famine times in the 1840s or before.
