The Wicklow County Archives offers a genealogy research service, researching and advising those with Wicklow roots. The service was established in 1987 by Wicklow County Council. Since its foundation, our staff has computerised Wicklow's Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland parish registers, some of which date from the 17th century. Methodist and Presbyterian church records within the county have also been computerised. All of our parish records stop at 1900. Our baptisms, marriages and burial records are also available online at www.rootsireland.ie.
Other records held include land and tax records, ie Griffith's Valuation and the Tithe Applotment Books, as well as Ordnance Survey townland maps, parish maps, place histories, commercial directories and tombstone inscriptions. These sources enable us to give Wicklow descendants as complete a picture as possible of where and how their ancestors lived. We have researched and compiled Wicklow family histories for enquirers from Ireland, Britain, the USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.
Research advice/consultation - appointment only
