- “Irish Catholic Church Records – NOW ONLINE AND FREE!!!!” by the Armchair Genealogist – Just an FYI, Deb Sweeney left me a note that this database isn’t searchable by surname and you have to know the parish where your ancestors came from. Also, most parishes didn’t start keeping records until the 1850’s. Still, a free database is a free database! Just keep those things in mind 🙂
