Surname index for selected memorials of Irish deeds

Home > Records > Irish Deeds > Surname index

Scope of the index:

This section contains surname index entries for those memorials which have been submitted by Alison Kilpatrick to Nick Reddan’s Registry of Deeds Index Project Ireland website. This index serves as a finding aid primarily for family and local historians with research interests in the Barony of Dungannon and county of Tyrone. Because a number of memorials have been indexed for other places, such as the counties of Armagh and Monaghan, these also have been included. — See also the sub-section, What to do if you find a surname index entry of interest, below.

While I have been compiling index entries for the Registry of Deeds Index Project Ireland since 2016, these summary indexes on Arborealis are new. It will take time to bring these indexes up-to-date with the actual number of index entries already submitted to the Project and to update them further with index entries that are in progress on an ongoing basis.

With the most recent update (2021-05-23), surname indexes have been published to Arborealis for Volumes 1 – 56, representing the years 1708 to about 1727-28.

What to do if you find a surname index entry of interest:

  • Check whether a transcript or a set of index entries for the memorial have been posted to the transcripts section here on Arborealis.
  • Surf to Nick Reddan’s main search page, and input the memorial number into the search box. The memorial number is the third part of the reference number. For example, for Memorial no. 149-202-99462 : the volume number is 149, the page number within that volume is 202, and the memorial number on that page is 99462.
  • If you wish to read a digital version of the original memorial, refer to Nick Reddan’s sections, Aids for navigating Registry of Deeds virtual films, and Guides to the Registry of Deeds.
