The availability of records of Irish people prior to 1800 is sparse for various reasons - not least the accidental or deliberate destruction of records over the centuries. The purpose of this Index, therefore, is to bring together all the earliest records for individual surnames in one place. If you would like to help with this project see Submit a List! below.
