Counties Not Online
Some counties in Ireland do not have an IFHF county genealogy centre, are not participating in the online service or do not offer a genealogy service at the present time. The IFHF is working towards the goal of all Irish county genealogy centres participating in the online service and also offering a full genealogy research service.
Some counties which are not online at present will be joining the Online Research Service in the coming months. All counties continue to work on the computerization of further records.
A large part of Co. Cork, south and west is not covered by any IFHF centre. Cork City records are being computerised by the Cork Ancestral Project which does not currently undertake research or make its records available online. For further information please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
