Vital Records

The collection of the Family History Library has very few records of birth, marriage or deaths of the Irish Jews. However, in his book,The Jews of Ireland from earliest times to 1910, Louis Hyman has included a transcript of the register of births and deaths (1820-1879) of the Dublin Hebrew Congregation.


Many records of the Irish Jews have been added to the Knowles Collection: the Jews of the British Isles. These records include birth, marriage, death, census records and burial records. This database, which links people together in families, is contiually being added to and is freely searchable.

Irish Jewish Roots ($) is an online database with almost 50,000 compiled records who have lived in Ireland between 1700 and today. Searching by name is free; it will cost to see the record.
