Irish: Immigration, Naturalization and Emigration Records
Register (Fees/Dates)
Other Info
Sadly, there are no complete records of emigration, immigration or naturalization for Ireland. There are some collections of this information available from Irish record sources, however the bulk of meaningful source material will more likely come from the receiving country or sending country than from Irish sources. In both case, we will examine the materials that are available involving the Irish, the time periods they cover, and their availability & access. It is often a sparse and scattered collection of records that are not easily investigated, however can provide a wealth of information on ancestors and their subsequent residences or earlier origins.
