April 3rd Update: Buried in Fingal Website Launch Postponed from 8th May 2017 to a later date
I wish to inform you that the launch of the Fingal’s burial records website ‘Buried in Fingal’, due to take place in the Atrium, County Hall, on May 8th at 4 p.m. has been temporarily postponed. Apologies for the short notice. A new Press release will be issued once a new date and time have been confirmed.
On May 8th Fingal County Council launches a new free online database of all if its burial records, indexed and fully searchable. The Council has responsibility for 33 burial grounds, and has records of burials dating back to 1905.
The Website launch will take place in the Atrium County Hall Swords at 4pm. John
Grenham, consultant genealogist, known to many for his Irish Times column, the RTE Genealogy Roadshow, and his own online research tool Irish Ancestors and many books on the subject of Irish family history, will speak at the launch, as will Mayor or Fingal Cllr Darragh Butler.
Apart from the burial records of over 65,000 people interred in Fingal between 1905 and 2005, the database also contains information about the history of each graveyard, maps and drawings, photographs and location information, notes of notable burials and extracts from interesting epitaphs.
Once launched, the database will be accessible via website of Fingal County Council www.fingal.ie, on the Libraries or Burial Grounds page, or by simply searching for “Buried in Fingal”.
Speaking regarding the launch Colm McQuinn, Archivist Fingal County Council said “The database “Buried in Ireland” will provide an invaluable resource for Genealogists and anyone interested in Historical research”
