The General Record Office
General Register Office (Oifig An Ard-Chláraitheora) is the central repository for records relating to Births, Deaths and Marriages in the Republic of Ireland. It is concerned with civil registration matters only, and does not engage in genealogical research. Records of marriages other than Roman Catholic marriages date back to 1st April 1845. Records of Births, Deaths and Roman Catholic Marriages date to 1st January, 1864.

Fianna's Guide to Irish Research,
This site includes links to maps, Irish history, FHC film #'s, census records and anything important  for the Irish genealogy researcher.

Irish Parish/town History Book Website  
Many town and/or parishes in Ireland have written histories.  The Parish History Book website is a central point where local history books are listed by county and can be very helpful to the Irish genealogical research.  First, they tell the history of the area, recount many local stories and at times include the tithes and  Griffiths Valuation data for the area.

Registry of Deeds Index Project
One of the best sources for 18th century family history information in Ireland is the Registry of Deeds. A project has started to provide a full name index of the repository. It has currently nearly 10,000 index entries. Note that there are about 1,00,000 deeds between 1708 and 1833 with a minimum of four people mentioned in each. Thus there is a long way to go.

The Irish American Mailing List is for anyone who has an interest in the Genealogy, History, Culture or anything related to the Irish immigration to the United States. If your ancestor(s) lived or even just passed through America, they have a special type of culture. The fun part of the list is figuring our what part or our traditions originated in Ireland or originated in the USA. Because of the many different immigrants all living in poor neighborhoods when they first came over, many of our traditions are a result of the many nationalities living together. This list will be a place where we discuss those traditions that include holidays, recipes, music, weddings, births, funerals/wakes, etc. Hopefully, in our discourse we will find not only genealogical connections, directions and resources but also where our family traditions started and which are pure Irish, which are Irish American or which are the result of that wonderful melting pot, the United States of America.

National Archives of Ireland, Many of the archives accessioned by the Public Record Office of Ireland before 1922 were destroyed by fire and explosion at the beginning of the Civil War in June 1922. Consequently, the archives now held by the National Archives date mainly from the 19th and 20th centuries, although some date back as far as the 13th century.

National Library of Ireland The mission of the Library is to collect, preserve and make available books, manuscripts and illustrative material of Irish interest. Users of the Library include those engaged in long-term research, others who may wish to view a book or newspaper article or those with a specific once off need.

The National Library is open, free of charge, to all those who wish to consult the collections for material not otherwise available through the public library service or an academic library. A Reader’s Ticket is necessary in order to consult most categories of material. 

The Library does not lend books and reading is done in the various reading rooms. There is also a copying service and it is possible to get photocopies, photographs, slides, or microfilm of most items in the collections. The Library has an ongoing program of exhibitions.

The Genealogical Office, the Office of the Chief Herald in Kildare Street, and the National Photographic Archive in Temple Bar are all part of the National Library.
