Launched in May 2011, findmypast.ie is a joint venture between UK-based family history website findmypast and Eneclann, the award-winning Irish history and heritage company. Aimed at the 80 million people worldwide who claim Irish ancestry, the site hosts the most detailed and thorough collection of Irish records ever seen in one place, including land records, directories, wills, obituaries, gravestone inscriptions and marriages.
The earliest records date back to the 13th century (wills) and include several important collections from the 18th century (The Elphin Census 1749 and the 1798 Rebellion records). The collection includes the exclusive publication of the Landed Estates Court Records, a very important resource for the mid- to late-nineteenth 19th century, giving details of over 500,000 tenants on Irish estates.
Findmypast.ie has a dedicated team in Dublin to work with Eneclann to develop the site.
