Published in 1897 Farrar's Index to Irish Marriages is compiled principally from Walker's Hibernian Magazine. “The Hibernian Magazine: or compendium of entertaining knowledge” was a monthly magazine established in 1771, ceasing publication in 1812. It was the main Dublin journal for the period, covering news, fashion, the arts and current affairs. It was also the main publication for the announcement of marriages. With over 12,000 marriages listed, this index is a valuable resource for a period for which few church records survive. Information found in the announcements often includes addresses, names and details of the parents (mostly the fathers of the bride), date and place of the marriage as well as other additional details. Also included is an appendix by Sir Arthur Vicars compiling the births, deaths and marriages recorded in the magazine Anthologia Hibernica (1793-1794). In total there are over 14,000 names included in the index making it an extremely valuable and unique resource.
