Breifne Historical Society was founded at a meeting in the Farnham Arms Hotel in Cavan on 13 January 1956. It was founded as a non political and non sectarian historical society to promote interest in and the study of the local history of the ancient kingdom of Breifne. The society publishes a journal called ‘Breifne’ which is published in April or May of each year.
Claire Santry's regularly updated blog reports on the latest Irish genealogy developments and record releases, and it's read by professional and amateur genealogists who recognise its independence and wide coverage of news.
Ruth Mathewson's comprehensive and insightful genealogical reference website is an excellent resource for anyone doing family research and is highly recommended. Just a little quirky....."Where a feast of advice, findings aids and links to Irish genealogical resources have been served up for your delectation!"
The purpose of this project is to provide finding aids for the records held at the Registry of Deeds in Dublin. There are three sets of indexes produced by the project:
The main index is building a name index for the memorial transcription books held at the Registry of Deeds
The grantors index consists of transcriptions of the Registry of Deeds' grantors indexes
The townland index consists of transcriptions of the Registry of Deeds' townland indexes
