We’re all familiar with looking at Catholic records in Ireland, but the
Catholic church is also the largest and oldest denomination in America.
In Britain, despite rigorous enforcement of the penal laws, up to 25% of
parts of England remained Catholic during the 1700s. Both the US and
Britain’s Catholic community expanded dramatically through Irish
immigration, especially in the nineteenth century. But Catholic records
outside of Ireland are notoriously difficult to access. This has started
to change, and in this talk Brian will give you an overview of the work
he is doing with Findmypast to make these records easily accessible. He
will describe what records survive and how they can help you build your
Irish family history.
