Wicklow Family History Centre & Archives
The Wicklow Family History Centre is a genealogy research service directly operated by Wicklow County Council.
Since its foundation in 1987, staff have computerised County Wicklow's:
church records which date from the seventeenth century and stop at 1900. These include, Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland parish registers, and records for the Methodist and Presbyterian circuits.
land and tax records, i.e. Griffith's Valuation and the Tithe Applotment Books,
Ordnance Survey townland maps, parish maps,
to give Wicklow descendants as complete a picture as possible of where and how their ancestors lived.
The Archives Collection includes
the 17th and 18th century Wicklow Borough records (early minute books that offer a snapshot of life in Wicklow from the mid-1600s)
records of the Grand Jury (the precursor of Wicklow County Council),
minutes of the Boards of Guardians of the poor law unions and the boards of health, rural and district, town and county councils.
These collections can now be explored on their website here.
