Church of Ireland - Anglican Records Project

St Luran, (Derryloran) Cookstown 
(one of the parishes currently available)
Baptism, marriage and burial registers of the Church of Ireland are being made available in digital format on the church's website. While only a handful of parishes are fully transcribed, the number is growing steadily. The records are in searchable PDF book format (not images of the actual registers), and each parish includes a table that lists churches individually, along with the years covered. 

 To see the list of parishes currently available, go to Church of Ireland - Anglican Records Project. Also check out "Genealogy" under [Pages of Interest] on the Welcome page to read Church of Ireland research policies, and to learn more about records destroyed in the 1922 fire at the Public Record Office, as well as records that might be effective replacements for burned records. 

Contact information and details about how to request information through local clergy are also provided.
