St. Patrick’s Day is all about celebrating your Irish heritage… and what better way to celebrate your connection to the Emerald Isle than to make discoveries about your ancestors who lived there?

From March 11–18, 2021, you’ll be able to do just that on MyHeritage for free! We’re opening all Irish records to the public for the entire week. Don’t miss your chance to delve into the historical records and find new information about your relatives!

Search Irish records on MyHeritage

As many as 100 million people all over the world are believed to have Irish ancestors. In the 2019 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, around 32 Americans identified as being of Irish heritage — but the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that around 40 million Americans have some Irish ancestry. That leaves around 8 million U.S. citizens who don’t know that they are from an Irish background! Perhaps making these records readily accessible will help more of them realize their connection to Ireland.

MyHeritage’s Irish record collection includes around 14 million records of all kinds: census records, vital records, directories, wills, and much more.

MyHeritage is also home to around 120 million family tree profiles with Irish heritage — so even if you don’t find your ancestors among the free records, you just might discover a relative who’s already done some sleuthing and can give you some new insights!

Remember, these records are free only from March 11–18, so mark your calendars to search the free Irish records on MyHeritage!

    I would recommend that a help for Lionel and Catherine, and beginners like you, try to find your local or state Genealogical Society Website and find out if they have a Beginners classes or research services. There you find humans to help you get you started. Or use the familysearch.org wiki to start off.

    THEN you find the DNA results.
