Genealogy Resources

Public libraries may provide genealogy resources such as church, land and census records, parish registers, local newspaper archives, street directories and online databases so that library users can research their family history.

Carlow Central Library’s Local History facility offers a range of resources that can assist visitors in undertaking their genealogical research. These include local history publications, maps, directories and access to a wide range of online databases. Topics covered in these cover newspaper archives, church and state registers, Rate Books, the Census, Griffiths Valuation, Tithe Applotment Books, graveyard registers and Poor Law Union records. Meetings by appointment can be arranged with a genealogist who can assist in your research.
