15,000 New Genealogy Records


Over 15,000 previously unavailable genealogy records relating to the greater West Cork area are now added to our Graveyard Database.

Skibbereen Heritage Centre has been digitising Cork County Council burial registers for a number of graveyards in West Cork for some time now and the results of this work are now available on this site.  These new records are in addition to the graveyards surveys already available on our West Cork Graveyards database.

For a list of the graveyards involved, and to search the database, please go to our Graveyards Page.

You can also view a tutorial video of how best to use this database.

We’ve also added a video tour of Caheragh Old Graveyard.

We are continuing this work while our exhibitions are currently closed due to the Covid 19 crisis so more records will be added over time.
