Findmypast Friday: Records for the Diocese of Dublin and Newspapers

 I received this information from Findmypast today:


Records for the Diocese of Dublin dominate releases this Findmypast  Friday  

Ireland, Diocese of Dublin Marriage Licenses, 1638-1858 

Over 98,000 records have been added to this existing collection, perfect if you have ancestors who may have lived in the Diocese of Dublin. You’ll typically find the date of registration, both spouses’ names, and sometimes occupations and residences.   

Ireland, Diocese of Dublin Wills & Grants, 1270-1858 

This existing collection has been bolstered by an additional 34,450 records. These records are from index books that were published in the 1890s, covering wills, grants of probate, or administrations recorded by the Anglican Diocese of Dublin between 1270 and 1858.
