RCB Library Archive of the Month February 2015 – Kilternan parish registers 1817–1900 transcribed and indexed

By Lynn Glanville

Kilternan

The RCB Library is once again collaborating with Mark Williams and the
Anglican Record Project
by making the transcripts of another
Church of Ireland parish available in digital format as this month’s
Archive of the Month presentation. This time the parish is that of
Kilternan in south county Dublin, and the online presentation
features the complete run of baptisms, marriages and burials from 1817
(when register–keeping commenced) up to 1900.

For
this project, two combined registers have been completely transcribed
together with the first five years of baptismal register from 1895 to
1900 and the first 54 years of one marriage register
– providing a continuous 83–year run of records. As is the norm with
the Anglican Record Project, the transcripts are enhanced by a
comprehensive alphabetical index of names. All may be accessed as pdf
documents from this website, whilst the original volumes
from which the information was transcribed are available in the RCB
Library in the context of other original parish records such as vestry
minute books, accounts, preachers’ books and a host of associated
records.

Whilst
known today as simply ‘Kilternan’, the geographical area it serves was
originally covered by the two neighbouring parishes of Kilgobbin and
Kilternan. …read more
