Roots Ireland

As an alternative option to engaging our professional research service, Limerick Genealogy's database of over one million genealogical records for Limerick City and County is searchable online on a subscription basis at, for those who wish to carry out their own searches for family records. 

Through this online database you can search for your ancestors in church and civil records, 1901 Census returns and various census substitutes for Limerick City and County. Over one million transcribed records of births, baptisms, marriages, deaths, burials, census returns and census substitutes for Limerick City and County are currently online and we aim to add more records in the coming year. A full and detailed list of the records currently searchable for Limerick can be viewed here.

RootsIreland is an all-Ireland initiative developed by the not-for-profit Irish organisation, the Irish Family History Foundation. The aim of the project is to create a countrywide searchable database of genealogical records and to date the database contains the largest collection of Irish parish records searchable online. Over 20 million Irish genealogical records are currently searchable on this database with more being added all the time.

We would like to note however that this facility is not a substitute for commissioned research through our experienced and trained Limerick-based service with researchers who are aware of the limitations of records and possible errors; someone who can check original records as part of the research and who is familiar with the geography and history of Limerick. From the Online Record Search you may find that, based on the information available to you, there too many possibilities and in this situation we would recommend that you contact us.
