Note that VERY FEW if any of these have records on line. In some cases you can write in (with a fee) to have information researched; in others, you would have to go to the actual building (in Ireland) to get the information.

If you have or know of any ELECTRONIC versions of this information, let me know! I'll post any information I have of on-line resources.
