Illuminating Irish Stories with New Records Added to Findmypast:

The following announcement was written by Findmypast:

Ireland, Genealogical Office Manuscripts, Wills 

Also new this week, compiled by Denis O’Callaghan Fisher and Sir William Betham, these 10,501 records cover 1596 to 1866. Separately, both men worked on compiling pedigrees from prerogative and diocesan wills. Now in one collection, these are easier to explore than ever. You might find addresses, occupations and even other family members.
