Church Leaders at the Launch The Irish Family History Foundation’s Genealogical Online Research System was launched in the Navan Centre, Armagh, on Friday, November 30th, 2007. The system was officially launched by the leaders of the four main churches in Ireland, whose records form the core of the database.

The Irish Family History Foundation with its cross-border network of local centres is the largest provider of professional family history research services in Ireland.  The IFHF operates on an all-island basis. 

Each county centre has a local computer database comprising various church records of baptisms, marriages & deaths; civil records of births, deaths & marriages; Griffith’s Valuation; Tithe Applotment Books; the 1901 & 1911 census records; gravestone inscriptions. 

Now that the bulk of the computerization of genealogical material has been completed by the county based genealogy centres, to further bring together the 40 million+ records as a searchable database online is a remarkable proposition.   Having created a searchable database of the information contained within the original sources it is now possible to offer the ability to anyone with an internet connection, anywhere in the world, to access and search for information on their ancestors across all the main Irish genealogical sources and to retire the original sources from general use.
