World GenWeb Project


What is the WorldGenWeb?

The WorldGenWeb is a non-profit volunteer organization that is dedicated to the free use and access of public domain genealogical information. To further this goal, the WorldGenWeb uses internet websites to create "local repositories" of information that researchers worldwide can access. Each project website (generally) will contain local resource addresses of county/country public records offices, cemetery locations, maps, library addresses, archive addresses, and association addresses including Family History Centers or other genealogical or historical societies, and some history and culture of the region. Other resources include query pages or message boards, mail lists, historical data including census records, cemetery records, biographies, bibliographies, and family/surname registration websites.


Ireland GenWeb Project

Every Ireland county maintains a system for submitting queries. Please visit the county site for instructions on posting queries and other pertinent resource and reference information.

Ireland and Northern Ireland have been separate countries since the Civil War of 1922. For information pertaining to the six irish counties that make up Northern Ireland, please visit the Northern IrelandGenWeb Project.
