Church Of Ireland Parish Record Search Forms

Find out if your Irish ancestor applied for the Old Age Pension when it was introduced and used a search of the Church of Ireland parish registers to prove their age. For those born before the introduction of civil registration, proving they were old enough for the pension could be difficult. Proof was accepted from entries in parish records and census returns held in the Public Records Office. These searches are of the Church of Ireland registers for births, deaths and marriages and also the 19th century Irish censuses that no longer survive. Containing an astonishing amount of information, you may find out not just your ancestor’s name, date of birth and address but also the names of their parents and other family members.
